In 1869, Josef Strauss spent the summer together with his brother Johann in Pavlovsk near St. Petersburg. When he recovered from an illness he wrote a particularly fast-paced fast polka and gave the work the title: 'Ohne Sorgen!' (Without worries). It is not to be noted from the exuberantly cheerful composition, from which distress it originated. Josef Strauss wanted to be lively and intoxicatingly optimistic. It was premiered the 10th of September, 1869 in Pavlovsk and in this polka even the musicians had to laugh (ha, ha, ha), as if the whole world was actually 'Ohne Sorgen!'
