Rainer Hersch will host the performance, aiming to whisk audiences back to 19th century Vienna through a programme of waltzes and polkas from the Strauss musical dynasty. Rainer will be conducting the Johann Strauss Orchestra as it performs classic Strauss pieces including Blue Danube Waltz, Radetsky March, Roses From The South and Lucifer Polka.
The Johann Strauss Gala 2014 UK tour. Hosted by irrepressible showman Rainer Hersch, the performance recreates the ambiance of a 19th century Viennese ballroom as he guides the audience with a dash of comedy through a frolicking show filled with music, laughter and dance.
Promo poster for "Hersch on Herschel" Rainer's programme about the musician/astronomer William Herschel for BBC Radio 4. "William Herschel: what a brilliant bloke. 1781 - discovered the infrared, drew pictures of our galaxy as if viewed from outside it, discovered Uranus with a mirror (well, you'd have to wouldn't you?) Produced by the equally brilliant Julian Mayers. Thanks to Nick Romero for the great image."
