Although little known today, during his lifetime Carl Michael Ziehrer (1843–1922) was a formidable rival to Johann Strauss II for the affections of Viennese music lovers. Trained at the Vienna Conservatory, he was launched as a rival to Strauss in 1863 by music publisher Carl Haslinger after the latter had a falling out with the Waltz King. Ziehrer served as a bandmaster to various ensembles from 1870 to 1877, and then formed an orchestra by hiring many players from the recently disbanded group of Eduard Strauss. Rather imprudently, he named his ensemble the Former Eduard Strauss Orchestra, and a resulting lawsuit led to several years of self-imposed exile, during which he built up an international reputation as an exacting conductor and instructor with various bands. Upon his return to Vienna he was appointed bandmaster of the Hoch- und Deutschmeister Regiment in 1885 and held that position for several years, bringing the ensemble to the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. In 1909, having outlived his musical nemesis, he was appointed the director of the Imperial Court Ball, the only non-member of the Strauss family to hold that post. Impoverished by the World War, he died destitute. According to the official Carl Ziehrer Web site, ziehrer.at, and the Web site of the Johann Strauss Society of Great Britain, johann-strauss.org.uk, his compositional output of 566 opus numbers includes 22 operas and operettas, about 70 marches, and almost 500 waltzes, polkas, and other dances. His most successful work, the operetta Die Landstreicher (1899), ran for a record 1,500 consecutive performances.


This series of CDs by Preiser devoted to Ziehrer’s music has now reached at least Vol. 14; the Salut für Ziehrer album performed by a military band is Vol. 6, and the Sternschnuppen album for orchestra is Vol. 8. None of the previous volumes have made it into the pages of Fanfare , though in 33:3 David L. Kirk welcomed the new cpo release of the operetta Die drei Wünsche . Certainly, Ziehrer was not on Strauss’s exalted plane of immortality; his works, tuneful and energetic, have everything except the rare and elusive quality of memorability. But neither was he a mere Strauss epigone; he had his own voice, with a distinctive flavor of march rhythms drawn from his many years of experience leading military bands. Both ensembles and their respective conductors perform this music with complete aplomb and refreshing zest; the band ensemble in the first listed CD is on the small side and on a first hearing sounds rather thin, but on subsequent audition comes across quite nicely. One item, the Nervös Polka française, is played on both discs. The recorded sound on both issues is crisp and clear; booklet notes provide details on each piece, but virtually no information about the composer. Anyone who enjoys the music of the Strauss dynasty, Suppé, or Waldteufel will eagerly welcome these discs; both are warmly recommended.
