Tristsch Tratsch was a satirical magazine in Vienna in. In 1858 it printed a profile of Johann Strauss: it was feared, said the report, that Strauss’ concert seasons in Russia and the development of his compositional style under the influence of Richard Wagner’s work were causing him to neglect his dance-hungry Viennese public. Strauss answered that reproach by writing a quick polka which musically imitated a gossip session.
