Johann's jolly Amazonen-Polka again takes its title from Greek mythology , this time recailing the race of women warriors. In the German language female equestrians were also referred to as 'Amazons'!
The Viennese public were first introduced to Strauss junior's Amazonen-Polka during a carnival event at Dommayer's Casino, Hietzing, in January 1845. The work passed relatively unnoticed, since it was Johann Strauss Father and his orchestra who again dominated that year's carnival festivities in the Austrian capital.
