Welcome, Johann Strauss fans!
Here you can find lots of information on the Strauss family and their contemporaries
"One can be introduced to a lot more on Viennese popular music here than anywhere else"
If you like the music, a Viennese ball, concerts, or operetta, or even music played by small groups, then The Johann Strauss Society of Great Britain is here to keep you informed and up to date. The Society caters both for music professionals as well as enthusiasts.
You can find potted biographies of the Strauss family and many of their contemporaries, with drop down lists of their compositions, current events, useful links, sponsored CDs with some sound clips, a subject index to our publications, and a feedback form for your personal use. The website is easy to navigate and is being constantly added to.
We operate a music hire service for orchestras and an archive listing can be found under the scores tab.
For as little as £22 you can instantly become an online member for 2015 to access far more, including rare recordings, our extensive publications in PDF format that include back issues of newsletters, our magazine Vienna Music and a CD catalogue with discounted prices. You will be able to access our extensive archive listings, and link to over 1000 sound and video recordings, which are being constantly added to. Members also benefit from an email notification service, and more.
Please use the members tab where it is quick and easy to join using the PayPal facility which also accepts secure credit card payment. The more members we have, the better the service we can provide. We are non-profit making and have a world wide membership and have been operating for over 50 years.
