The songs of emperian Austria were composed by the Strauss family. As such the waltzes of Strauss Jr. all have a grace about unique to the classical music family. Most of them are readily known, such as the Blue Danube and the Tales From the Vienna Woods. All of the waltzes have a basic structure: an introduction and then five different sections that Strauss Jr. made textually complex. Then they finish with a coda, or a reintroduction of the main waltz theme. But they are not meant to be just listened to, so to enjoy them the most a dance is in order!
