Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Eldest of the three sons of the dynasty’s founder Johann I, the younger Johann Strauss (1825–1899) directed his own orchestra for a quarter of a century before retiring to concentrate on the composition of operettas. His Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka (‘Chit-Chat Polka’) dates from 1858. It takes its name from a weekly Viennese satirical journal, and the chattering melodic line admirably conveys the impression of local people exchanging the latest gossip.
