Iosif Ivanovici (1845-1902) was a Romanian military band leader and composer of Banat Serbian origin. Ivanovici was born in Timișoara, Austrian Empire. His interest in music began after he learned to play a flute given to him when he was a child.
In his lifetime he composed over 350 dances, and his works were published by over sixty publishing houses throughout the world. Today, Ivanovici is chiefly remembered for his waltz 'Danube Waves' ('Donauwellen' in German, 'Flots du Danube', in French).
Dutch arranger Jos van de Braak transcribed this beautiful waltz for Symphonic Band.
