Johann Strauss Jr., was born in Vienna, where his father was an enormously famous musician. When the elder Strauss decided that Johann Jr. should be a banker, his mother encouraged him to go into music. When he was 19, Johann Strauss Jr. started his own orchestra and conducted his first public concert. Eventually people began to realize that the younger Strauss was even better than his father. Strauss toured internationally with his orchestra. Everywhere he went, he wrote new music dedicated to the places he visited.
