by Johann Strauss, Sr.
arr. Aaron Noe
Each year Austrians ring in the new year with a performance of Johann Strauss' Radetzky. Composed in 1848 and dedicated to the military commander Joseph Radetzky von Radetz, this march became popular among the Austrian military. This arrangement includes the snare drum introduction synonymous with the traditional playing of this march, as well as, the original grace notes in the woodwinds. The trio features a trumpet solo.
Radetzky is great way to introduce your students to music of the Romantic Period. This march serves well in concert or contest.
