DU UND DU
Strauss's Waltz ''Du und Du'' (''You and You''), published around the end of 1874, is based on motives from the operetta ''Die Fledermaus'' (The BaT) and named after one of its melodies, the famous chorus of Act II. The introduction, in triple meter (3/4), never modulates away from its basic key, F major. ''Du und Du'' contains 3 waltzes, each of them in the traditional structure ABA. After the third and last waltz, the piece concludes with a coda that elaborates fragments from the previous waltzes.
