Donau, so blau. 150 Jahre An der schönen, blauen Donau von Johann Strauß

Unfortunately, text is only available in German

Vor nunmehr 150 Jahren wurde eines der weltweit meistgespielten Musikwerke aus der Taufe gehoben: der "Donauwalzer", genauer gesagt die Walzerpartie An der schönen, blauen Donau, op. 314, von Johann Strauss (Sohn). Diesem war 1863 der Titel "k. k.. Hofball-Musikdirektor" verliehen worden. Das Tagesgeschäft hatte er weitgehend an seine beiden Brüder Josef und Eduard abgegeben, und er trug sich mit dem Gedanken, ins Operettenfach überzuwechseln. Vom inneren Druck befreit setzte er ab 1867 zu einem bis dahin ungekannten künstlerischen Höhenflug an. In rascher Folge entstand eine Serie absoluter Meisterwerke: Künstler-Leben, Leichtes Blut, Unter Donner und Blitz, Geschichten aus dem Wienerwald,Éljen a Magyár, Wein, Weib und Gesang, Egyptischer Marsch, Im Krapfenwald’l und an der Spitze, gleichsam alsPrimus inter Pares, An der schönen, blauen Donau.

Schon bald entstand die inzwischen von der Wissenschaft widerlegte Legende, dass das Werk bei derPremieredurchgefallen wäre und erst vom Ausland aus seinen Siegeszug um die Welt angetreten hätte. Die wahren Hintergründe der Entstehung und Verbreitung des "Donauwalzers", seine ungebrochene, in einer geradezu singulären Stellung gipfelnde Wirkung bis heute sind die Themen der Ausstellung.
