Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the field of entertainment music, Ziehrer’s name was soon a quality brand in Vienna, especially as Carl Haslinger, Johann Strauss Jr.’s publisher, provided him with valuable assistance. Unlike Strauss, Ziehrer came from the piano, so he was not a standing leading violinist, but availed himself of a baton. He wrote countless orchestral compositions, above all waltzes, but also marches and polkas, including many that would be termed ‘hits’ today, as well as more than twenty stage works. Most of these operettas are almost forgotten today, and merely Die Landstreicher (1899) comes to mind. It is a merry and graceful work in a popular tone and with a slightly sentimental mood. This recording is another jewel for the Capriccio Operetta Edition Read more who takes care of these unjustly forgotten composers and pieces. Read less
