Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Johann Strauss did not at all think highly of Carl Michael Ziehrer, and the very thought that such a man might offer him competition would have offended his honor. Ziehrer nevertheless went on to enjoy success. During 1885-93 he was the principal conductor of the Hoch- und Deutschmeister-Kapelle, where he came to embody the idea of the dashing military bandmaster, and in 1907 he succeeded Strauss as Imperial and Royal Court Ball Music Director. Ziehrer's waltzes, marches, and polkas were extremely popular in Vienna, and he wrote a total of twenty-two operettas. Catchy, peppy melodies were his strength, but he preferred to assign the instrumentation and arrangement of his operettas to others. It is thus quite probable that the arranger of his absolutely enchanting operetta Die drei Wuensche (The Three Wishes) was none other than Alexander Zemlinsky. Handwritten entries in the score point to this possibility. Whatever the case, the Schonbrunn Music Theater under Herbert Mogg has made a rewarding discovery here.
