In the early 19th century, when the waltz first came to prominence, it was considered as simply a ballroom dance. But with the development of Romantic music, especially by Chopin and Johann Strauss, the waltz became more of an emblem, to the point that in modern society the waltz’s emblematic meaning has more relevance than its actual function as a dance. People in cities around the world, including Vienna and Hong Kong, traditionally celebrate the New Year by attending a concert of waltzes, but the question remains: How did the waltz acquire such an emblematic significance?
