This seventeenth volume in Marco Polo's popular Johann Strauss I Edition celebrates the internationally adulated Viennese composer's unflagging ability to create dance music for all occasions and to stimulate a public avid for ever-new entertainment. His quadrilles, polkas, waltzes and other dances, usually named for the events at which they were first heard, today conjure visions of a vanished world of fashionable balls and spectacular events, such as the Emperor Ferdinand I's name-day in 1884 for which the Festive Quadrille was composed or the 1847 Spring Festival at which Aurora's Festive Sounds was played to a crowd of 30,000.
