Although the public enthusiastically received Indigo, critics generally blasted the libretto, resulting in several revisions over the years, the most successful of which is by Ernst Reiterer infeaturing an entirely new libretto and also entitled Tausend und eine Nacht. Such harmonic vocabulary was taken as bravado by some of Strauss ' contemporaries, who longed for waltzes in the style of Johann Strauss, Sr.
The first of the three waltz pairs is extended by a "trio," which itself consists of a measure melody and its repeat. The melodies themselves are ingeniously paired. For example, the ascending stepwise tune of the first waltz is countered by the descending stepwise tune of the second. Also, the last three measures of the "trio" are in a rhythm matching that of the opening of the waltz, enabling a smooth segue into the return of the waltz pair to create an overall ABA pattern.
Strauss sets the second waltz pair in C major, the key of the introduction, arrived at through a chromatic passage worthy of Liszt or Wagner. A measure melody makes up the Tausend Und Eine Nacht - Willi Boskovsky of the first half, the repeat of which is cut short by the appearance of the second of the pair of waltzes.
Instead of repeating the eight-measure theme in full, Strauss extends the tune through a duple-meter-sounding eighth-note motive that leads to a return of the entire waltz pair. For the third waltz Strauss ventures into F major, further distancing the music from the tonic. It is left to the coda to return to the tonic by working through previous material in reverse order.
The coda, one of Strauss Wiener Philharmoniker - Strauss-Concert Met Willi Boskovsk longest, contains entire reprises of the second and first waltz pairs, closing with material based on the opening waltz.
