Info

In 1851 Johann Strauss jr. composed the 'Albion-Polka', dedicated to Count Albert of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, husband of Queen Victoria of Great Britain. The count and his wife, Priscilla, both loved music and visited several balls and concerts during their stay in Vienna. On the other hand, Johann Strauss performed with his orchestra in the Count's residence at Palais Coburg. For one of these festivals, in autumn 1851, he wrote his 'Albion-Polka'. The work takes its title from the old Roman name for Britain.
