Brass Ensemble - Quintet
Score & Parts
Johann Strauss Jr. is known primarily for his beautiful waltzes, hence his renown in Vienna and elsewhere as the Waltz King. "The Blue Danube" and "Emperor" assume their rightful place in this medley for brass quintet, but also represented are two of his rousing polkas---"Tritsch Tratsch" and "Thunder and Lightning." The beautiful Andante from Die Fledermaus is present as well to showcase the melodic genius of Strauss. A great addition to any program!
