Programme notes: additional text

The composer was also inspired by the same title of a satirical magazine which was published a few months before the composition. It was premiered on 24 November 1958 in the Wirtshaus Zum grossen Zeisig in the Viennese suburb of Spittelberg. Johann Strauss was not only a master of composing and performing movingly elegant dance music for the Court and high society: he was also a hero of the common folk The Tritsch Tratsch polka is a number straight out of the working-class outskirts of 19th-century Vienna: "Tratsch" refers to the exchange of everyday neighborhood gossip.

Tritsch-Tratsch-Polka is a polka in A major by Johann Strauss II, written in 1858 after a successful tour of Russia where he performed in the summer concert season at Pavlovsk, Saint Petersburg. It was first performed in a concert in Vienna on 24 November 1858. Tritsch-Tratsch (chit-chat) refers to the Viennese passion for gossip. Strauss may also have been referencing the burlesque "Der Tritschtratsch" by the famous Austrian dramatist and actor Johann Nestroy, which premiered in 1833 and was still in the stage repertoire when the polka was written.

The mood of the piece is jaunty and high-spirited, as were many of Strauss' polkas.
Johann Strauss Sohn wrote this polka (Op.214) in 1858 as Johann Struass son was the first personality caricatured in the series "Viennese Personalities" in the satirical weekly journal "Humoristisch-satyrische Wochenschrift Tritsch-Tratsch" Plakat Trisch Tratsch Polka von Johann Strauss Sohn(Humorous-Satirical Journal Chitter-Chatter), second edition on March 7, 1858. Tritsch-Tratsch means chatter. This polka is a musical chatter of Viennese women at the market. The music polka comes from Czechia, polka means half-step and became popular in Europe in 19th century.
