Johan Strauss Jnr

4 Dances, a March &

perpetual motion on

percussion

Johan Strauss Jnr was discouraged from taking  up a career in music by his father but he  persisted. He was a contemporary of Brahms   with whom he was great friends. There is some  controversy over the arrangements of his music  played by orchestras today because he only left  piano transcriptions.  We have reverse  engineered the orchestral arrangements in this  selection simplifying them by reducing the  number of different instruments while making  the transcription   to New World percussion and  wind instruments with synthesizers to crisp,  sparkling effect bringing out the dynamic  qualities of this music. For example the harp  and pancarina transport the Blue Danube out of  central Europe into the Andes and the  Champagne Polka could be danced in Acapulco.  The marimba replaces the pizzicato violins in  the Pizzicato Polka, while the steel drums make  up the orchestra, taking us back to the  Caribbean for the Radetzky March
