Radetzky March, Op. 228, is a march composed by Johann Strauss Sr. and dedicated to Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz. First performed on 31 August 1848 in Vienna, it soon became quite popular among regimented marching soldiers. It has been remarked that its tone is more celebratory than martial; Strauss was commissioned to write the piece to commemorate Radetzky’s victory at the Battle of Custoza.
The cello ensemble version is highly playable, although the first part is best attempted by fluent musicians. It works equally well whether performed by five solo musicians or by a full cello orchestra!
The tempo indication is – Con brio
