Seufzer-Galopp, Op 9
The elder Johann Strauss began his career with his own orchestra in October 1825, a month after splitting from his friend and rival, Joseph Lanner. Before long his dance compositions became sufficiently popular to find their way into print. Galops form a significant part of his early output, since the style was one of the most popular of the 1820s and 1830s. They provided dancers with lively but – to avoid over-exhaustion – necessarily brief exertion. The Seufzer-Galopp (‘Sigh Galop’) was among a batch of Strauss’s dances published in December 1828, the sighs of the title being depicted in the falling notes of the fourth of the dance’s four eight-bar sections.
