“The legend lives on”
Since its founding by Johann Strauss Father more than 200 hundred years ago, the Strauss Capelle has been one of the most well respected and richly traditional orchestras in the history of the Wiener Walzer. Strauss Father, one of Austria’s most beloved composers, enchanted his audience with breathtaking performances of the contemporary masterpieces of his day. The Strauss Capelle grew to become the ambassadors of the famous Wiener Walzer music tradition. The entire Strauss family, including Strauss Father and his sons, Johann, Eduard and Josef, toured the world with their ensemble, ushering in a new Golden Age of the Wiener Waltz, making this tradition world famous. With the death of Johann Strauss II so too died the Strauss Capelle for a time. It was 75 long years before this musical inheritance was taken up once more and in 1977, with great loyalty and love for this special repertoire, the Wiener Walzer and Austrian music tradition began to live again. With this new rebirth of the orchestra, the most famous and beautiful melodies of the Strauss family were to be heard once more, enriching the concert houses of the world. Since 1977 this Viennese Ensemble has played over 3,000 concerts worldwide, never failing to create an unforgettable experience for its audience. The main focus of the orchestra is to continue to care for this rich musical tradition and even perform in the traditional red costumes from the time of Emperor Franz Joseph I.
The Strauss Capelle Wien offers several different unique programs, including traditional concerts, Viennese Balls and Galas, as well as private shows. The size of the ensemble is flexible based on the desired size of the audience, from a small string quintet to a full symphony orchestra. Though the Ensemble does its best to maintain a modern perspective for today’s modern audiences, the orchestra remains firmly root in Austrian tradition and history. Only in this way can a legend as great as the Strauss Dynasty live on today.
