Program 2: Johann Strauss II. On June 3rd 1899, Johann Strauss the Second died. Our feature traces his life from his early years when his father, Johann Strauss the First, lived sumptouosly with his mistress, while keeping his family on a miserly allowance. The boy's mother did all she could to bring out her son's musical potential, hoping that one day he would rival his father, if not surpass him.
