Tivoli-Rutsch-Walzer, Op 39
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Tivoli-Rutsch-Walzer (‘Tivoli Slide Waltz’) was introduced by Strauss at a gathering at Vienna’s Tivoli pleasure gardens in the Upper Meidling suburb on 9 October 1830. Like the still-surviving pleasure gardens established in Copenhagen around the same time, the Viennese entertainment spot took its name from a pleasure resort outside Rome. That in Vienna opened in September 1830, with Strauss as one of its musical directors. On 4 October, a celebration of the Name Day of Emperor Franz attracted six thousand visitors. So many were excluded that a repeat celebration was arranged, and it was then that Strauss performed his new waltz. The title commemorates a slide that was one of the garden’s main attractions – not a slide that children (and, of course, some adults!) slide down on their backsides, but one down which couples rode on a kind of carriage mounted on a sledge. The sliding effect is clearly depicted a few bars from the end in the waltz’s coda.
