The Radetzky March
The Radetzky March is a march composed by Johann Strauss Sr. and it was dedicated to the Field Marshal
Graf Radetzky von Radetz. The annual New Year’s Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic is almost always
closed by this piece. The distinctive rhythm (tatadám, tatadám, tatadámdámdám = 3 Anapests und 1 Iambus)
has contributed a lot to the high popularity of this march.
