“When Johann Strauss wrote The Blue Danube in 1866, the Austrian composer was inspired to write a joyful waltz to lift the mood of the country. Today, it is thought to be Austria’s second national anthem and is considered the most famous waltz ever written. In this episode, learn about the history of this piece and the inspiration behind its title.
