Perpetuum Mobile by Johann Strauss, Jr. (1825-1899). Arranged by M. Carros. For Concert Band. Novelties / Arrangements of Classical Pieces / New Year's Concert. Classic Arrangement. Grade 4. Score and Parts. Duration 3 minutes, 11 seconds. Published by Molenaar Edition (ML.012311080).
Johann Strauss Junior wrote this 'Perpetuum Mobile' opus 257 in 1861, inspired by a grand Viennese Ball. This event had been announced as a 'Carnival Perpetuum Mobile' with non-stop dancing and music. The Strauss Brothers conducted alternately, so the music and the dancing never stopped. This composition consists of 24 variations on a theme of 8 bars, allowing a small solopart to almost all instruments. As is often the case with Johann Straui!!'s compositions, the point comes at the end. This ingenious musical satire, subtitled 'A musical Joke', immediately became the big success of the Summer Concert Season of the Strauss Orchestra in the Russian town of Pavlovsk in 1862.
