Become the “Virtual Conductor” of the masterpiece
In winter 1866/67, Johann Strauss composed the Waltz „By the beautiful blue Danube”, op. 314, short - the Blue Danube. Soon after, the work became Vienna’s unofficial anthem and one of the most performed pieces of music in the classical repertoire worldwide. At Haus der Musik, the visitors get the unique opportunity to conduct the work themselves, as “virtual conductor” and a whole exhibition room is dedicated to Johann Strauss (1825 - 1899) and the Viennese Waltz.more
