I saw a documentation on TV about the history of Austria around and after the World War II. There was a school class that sang the song “Heidenröslein”. It was a popular folk song by Heinrich Werner based on music from Franz Schubert and on a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
I found a recording of “Das Meistersextett” a successor of the Comedian Harmonists from around 1934 and used the vocals to create a dance version of this song.
I can remember exactly: I was under the shower at the tennis hall we are playing regular in winter season. A smartphone from a colleague outside rang and played a music. I knew this melody, but could not identify it. But I was sure it was something that was played at the Vienna New Year’s Concert. So I listened to all recordings from the past – and I found it in 2018: “Wilhelm Tell-Galopp, op. 29b” from Johann Strauss I.
This inspired me to make a dance version of this famous traditional piece of music.
