If you love Strauss and Viennese Music
"You have come to the right site where there is more to be found than anywhere else"
Whether it's CDs, Viennese balls, concerts, operetta and zarzuela, music for the ballet, or music played by an ensemble or soloist we are here to serve both the enthusiast and the musician. The Johann Strauss Society of Great Britain keeps you informed and up to date.
You will find potted biographies of the Strauss family and many of their contemporaries, with drop down lists of their compositions. We list current events, our own sponsored CDs with 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 updated and expanded.
We operate a music hire service for orchestras and an archive listing can be found under the scores tab.
The Society has just celebrated its 50th year and we are connected to many professional orchestras. The music we cover, that is related in style, extends from Sousa and Rosas in the Americas to contemporaries in all the European nations.
