Johann Strauss II

Johann Strauss II (October 25, 1825 – June 3, 1899), also known as Johann Strauss, Jr., the Younger, the Son (German: Sohn), Johann Baptist Strauss, was an Austrian composer of light music, particularly dance music and operettas. He composed over 500 waltzes, polkas, quadrilles, and other types of dance music, as well as several operettas and a ballet. In his lifetime, he was known as “The Waltz King”, and was largely then responsible for the popularity of the waltz in Vienna during the 19th century.

Strauss had two younger brothers, Josef and Eduard Strauss, who became composers of light music as well, although they were never as well known as their elder brother. Some of Johann Strauss’ most famous works include “The Blue Danube“, “Kaiser-Walzer“, “Tales from the Vienna Woods“, and the “Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka“. Among his operettas, Die Fledermaus and Der Zigeunerbaron are the best known.

Carl Bohm

Carl Bohm (also known as Charles Bohm, Henry Cooper [pseudonym] and Karl Bohm) (11 September 1844 – 4 April 1920)[1] was a German pianist and composer.

Bohm is regarded as one of the leading German songwriters of the 19th century, and wrote such works as Still as the Night, Twilight, May Bells, Enfant Cheri and The Fountain.

The Oxford Companion to Music says that Bohm was “a German composer of great fecundity and the highest salability… He occupied an important position in the musical commonwealth inasmuch as his publisher, N. Simrock, declared that the profits on his compositions provided the capital for the publication of those of Brahms.” Bohm’s specialty was music in a lighter vein, very different from the dark, brooding and introspective works of Brahms.

Bohm, like Schubert, was more than just a songwriter, composing in most genres. His chamber music, mostly quartets and piano trios, were extremely popular not only amongst amateurs but also among touring professional groups who were always in need of a sure-fire audience pleaser.

Edition Silvertrust (see references) states that Bohm “was certainly very well known during his lifetime. Yet today, his name brings nothing but blank stares.” This curious obscurity is borne out more than ever by the fact that Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians contains no article about him.
