'Golden years' of Vienna music basis for series The Strauss family Anna, a ninety-minute premiere episode launches the seven part series which tells the colorful story of the Vien- nese family which gave the world its most memorable music. Beginning Sunday, April 29, 9 p.m. on CBC-TV, Erich Woofe (above) stars as Strauss senior with Stuart Wilson as the younger Johann. memories of big baud era Doc learned from the masters HOLLYWOOD (NBC) Doc Severinson looks back fondly on the heyday of the big band jazz and era. That's when he learned his craft. The star trumpeter shared the stage at New York City's Philharmonic Hall with many stars of that musical period including Benny-Goodman, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Count Basic, Bobby Hackett and Earl "Fatha" Hines for "The Times All-Star Swing Fes- tlic Peabody Award-win- ning special which Severinsen hosts. It will have an encore colorcast m, the NBC Te'evi- sion Nolwork Wednesday, May 2. Said Severinsen: "I was a kid' ed, you'd never lose track of just 17 when I started touring. I had never been away from Oregon before I began the one-nighters, travelling by bus from city to city I played with Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Charlie Barnett, Ted Fio Rito. There was no belter way to learn the business." Severinsen has always been impressed by the freedom and individuality with which the jazz and swing musicians ap- proached a melody. "Each mu- sician had freedom to express himself. He brought his own feeling to the music. But he never lost his sense of discip- line. So no matter what happen- t h e melody. That's what this sort of music is all about. One reason it may not be as big to- day is the fact that there isn't as much individualism today." Severinsen, music director of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" on NBC-TV, recalls the first time he heard Basic's band. "It was in the kitchen of my family's home in Arlington, Ore. Basie was broadcasting from the Hotel Edison in New York City. I thought my parents were going to tune in 'Lum 'n' Abner' until I heard the solid music. The sound was out of this world. It still is." They ranked, father and son, among the most gifted and celebrated composers and mu- sicians of their era, those "gol- den years" of the mW-19th cen- tury when life was sweeter, gayer, more colorful. Rivals, personally and often politically, they lived turbulent, troubled lives, strangely at odds with the tender and bewitching mu- sic they wrote and played. Fiercely competitive, in public and in private, they were nev- ertheless, the musical "super- stars" of Old Vienna for nearly 75 years, and have left behind a priceless legacy of unforget- table music masterpieces. For the first time on tele- vision, the strains of waltzes and polkas will provide a lilt- ing leit-motif for the dramatic life-histories of this unique pair, on Tlie Strauss Family, a new seven-part series of 90 and 60- minute color programs on the life and times of Johann Strauss Sr. and his son, Johann Jr. First of the series, Anna, will be tele- cast en April 29 at 9 p.m. on Channel 7. Lavishly filmed on location in Vienna and in London, the ser- ies spans fully 75 years, from 1824, when Strauss Sr. was 20 to the death of Johann Jr.. in 1899. Eric Woofe plays Johann Sr., with Anne Stallybrass as his long-suffering wife, Anna, am Barbara Ferris as Emilie, his mistress. Johann Jr., as young man is portrayed by Stu art Wilson, and by Alistair Mac kenzie as a child, with two oth er Strauss sons, Josef and Ed uard, played by Nikolas Sim monds and Tony Arnold. Mar garet Whiting, well-known to telsvision and film audiences in Europe and North America, cast as Hetti, the younger Jo- hann's first wife. In all, some 150 Strauss melodies will be heard during the series' seven-week run played by musicians of the Lon don Symphony Orchestra. Long forgotten numbers, some prob ably not played since tlie turn of tlie century, were unearthed in the archives of the Vientu State Library of Early Music others found in a small musi shop in the back streets of Vi enna. One of the most finds is the theme music fo the series, an original 16-ba phrase written by Johann Jr reada.pted and scored for th TV debut. Tlie Strauss family history is a snarl of tangled marital and xtra-marital al'fcks, intra-fam- ly rivalries, and a deep "gen- eration gap" between father and son. Young Johann was a rebel, ighting against the social and jolitical order. His father sided the status quo. Almost prophetically, the eld- sr Strauss, who in liis youth lad eked a bare living as a violinist, tried to his son from pursuing a musical career. The boy's mother, Anna, secretly aided Johann in iis studies, and at 19, yourg Strauss left his bank clerk's sition to become a Viennese favorite and his father's closest rival. In time, he was to eclipse his father's success as a musician and composer, penning over 400 unforgettable waltzes and polkas and a num- ber of operettas, notably DIa Fledermaus. Eric Woofe, who plays Strauss Sr., is a New Zealander with extensive theatrical and tele- vision experience. Miss SUUy- brass, 33, spans almost half "a century (from 19 to 68) in the seven programs, as a Loyal but ill-treated wife. She has baen highly praised for her portray- al of Jane Seymour in The Six Wives of Henry VIII. Stuart Wilson, as Johann Strauss Jr., has three wives portrayed by Margaret Wliit- ing, Georgina Hale and Lynn Farleigh.
