Song of the Day

November 28, 2012
Rosen aus dem Süden ("Roses From The South"), Op. 388
Johann Strauss
Strauss Greatest Hits (2003)

This song commemorates the passing of my grandfather, Ludwig Rumbucher, on November 27, 2012.  My Opi was a true lover of German and Austrian classical music, everything from waltzes to marches to polkas, and so today I'm playing one of Johann Strauss' most famous waltzes for him.  Ich liebe dich, Opi.

Also, I think we should all make fun of the fact that the Viennese Philharmonic Orchestra is called "Wiener Philharmoniker" auf deutsch.
