The twenty-nine piano arrangements in this superb collection are complete measure for measure transcriptions of the best known waltzes and favorite polkas, galops, quadrilles and polka-mazurkas of Johan Strauss Jr. Neither too facile nor overly difficult, they are immensely satisfying for pianists of many levels of accomplishment to play. Reprinted here from authoritative G. Schirmer editions, they are presented without cuts, the introductions and codas intact, the original suggestions for cuts to facilitate dancing retained. Included are Waltz favourites such as 'On the Beautiful Blue Danube', 'Tales from the Vienna Woods', 'Vienna Blood', 'Voices of Spring', 'Roses from the South', the 'Emporer Waltz' and highlights from 'Die Fledermaus'. The sparkling 'Pizzicato Polka', 'The Bayadere' galop and 'One Heart, One Mind' polka-mazurka are sure to delight pianists with their soaring Straussian spirits and haunting rhythms.
