According to wikipedia it was first performed in 1867 and was written by 
J Straus (died 1899) so the score is well out of copyright :-) - I think 
copyright for european sheet music is 70 years after death of the author 
so you're ok.

There should even be some recordings out there that are out of 
copyright, which is 50 years for recorded music in Europe - although if 
the irtc server is in the US I don't know how US law applies to european 
recordings.

So as far as I can tell for some music it could be legal to use someone 
else's recording but not to do your own, which makes no sense. (I am not 
a lawyer or musician just curious and possibly wrong)

Hmm drifted well off topic here sorry.
