The Emperor is the epitome of Johann Strauss, Jr. waltzes. Johann inherited his father's title, "the Waltz King." The Emperor Waltz is a very musical work that explores numerous textures while retaining the traditional waltz pulse in a stunningly beautiful setting. (5:14).

  • April 25, 2005 Be True to the Original Score

    The best transcriptions were written years ago when the arrangers wrote them measure for measure from orchestral to band score. This arrangement is watered down and very disappointing. So many of the parts come from the original score, why didn't Jack Bullock do a true transcription? It would have...

    , could have, been great. Instead it's a great disappointment. The piece should be titled "Themes from the Emperor Waltzes."
