Lanner

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Joseph Lanner didn't get to claim the title "Waltz King" but he could easily be the Waltz Duke. The German Symphony Orchestra plays a Lanner's waltz in tribute to Mozart, called "Die Mozartisten." They are conducted by Neeme Jarvi in Berlin.
