Hochzeitpräludium (Wedding Prelude) - Strauss

An unusual piece - marked ‘solemnly’ - creates a formal atmosphere.
Notes
Yes. That is Johann Strauss the Younger, the Waltz King - but no sign of the waltz here: this is a sacred piece, first heard in 1896, at the wedding of his step-daughter, Alice. Originally for harmonium, harp and violin.

Duration
approx 2 minutes.

Forces required
