Ziehrer was an Austrian bandmaster and composer. "He was... invited to represent Austria at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, which was followed by an extended American tour, and which led to his dismissal for overstaying his leave. Renaming his band the Chicagoer Konzert-Kapelle he toured Germany widely... The greatest rival to the Strauss brothers, Ziehrer's long career was similar to Johann Strauss II except for the periods as a military bandmaster. This experience gave a brashness and swagger to his compositions which, influenced by local folk music, created his unmistakable style." John E. Diamond in Grove Music Online.
