Program Notes

Johann Strauss, Jr., composed a great number of polkas, mazurkas and marches to perform with his own orchestra that played on "dance soirees" in Vienna. When the industrial age dawned in the middle of the 19th century, the phenomenon of perpetual motion again began to attract a lot of attention. In 1861 Strauss composed on this theme his Perpetuum Mobile, subtitled "A Musical Jest".
