Program Notes

March from Corso Donate (1841) was written during a time of political unrest due to the unpopularity of the monarch, Ferdinand I. The ruling Habsburg dynasty was anxious to divert the attention of the Viennese populace from politics to music and entertainment. Musical positions held by Lanner and Strauss were soon seen to be very important. Corso Donate is just such a piece (a ballet) written to distract the people.
