Johann Strauss jr. composed a great amount of polka’s, mazurka’s and marsches to perform with his own orchestra that played on ‘dance soirees’ in Vienna. His polka opus 332 ‘Éljen a Magyár!’ (Hungarian: Long Live the Magyar!!), was first performed at the Redoutensaal building in Pest in March 1869. The work was dedicated ‘to the Hungarian Nation’. The coda of the work features a fleeting quotation from the Rákóczi March, which Hector Berlioz had earlier utilized in his La damnation de Faust.
