I'm surprised that this brilliant little overture by Johann Strauss to his comic opera 'A Night in Venice' does not enjoy a wider audience. Its full of 'Straussisms', polkas, marches and waltzes. Because of the ever changing tempi and dynamics, it could also provide an excellent exercise in ensemble technique for your quartet. Great music
