Of his waltzes, one contemporary writer colourfully observed: ‘In his waltzes a profusion of melodies effervesce and bubble, fizz and froth, dash and sweep like the five hundred thousand devils in the champagne, slipping their bonds and flinging one cork after another into the air'... As a pioneer of the waltz, Strauss, along with Lanner, established the foundations upon which more extended and developed melodic line and ambitious harmony and structure could be built by their successors in the field of dance music." Peter Kemp in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Modern dark blue cloth-backed blue boards. 1f. (decorative title with vignette), [i] (printed dedication to Nikolaus von Meinau), 4-11, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. (Inventory #: 26800)
