Strauss, Johann (1825-1899)

Vienna-Salmannsdorf. - From 1829 to 1832, the family of Johann Strauss the Elder stayed for the summers in an early Biedermeier house (Dreimarksteingasse 13) in the then suburb in the west of Vienna.

The musical quotation shows an excerpt from the dance waltz op. 325 "Geschichten aus dem Wienerwald" ("Tales from the Vienna Woods") with the text "Wenn fern des Lenzes Ruf erhallt ... " ("When springtime calls from afar …").
