I don't actually - if it had only 4 bars it would be a hemidemisemiquaver but I don't know what comes after that...and in the thousands of pieces I've played I've never seen one...

Big wiki chunk............

In music, a hundred twenty-eighth note (American) or semihemidemisemiquaver or quasihemidemisemiquaver (British) is a note played for 1/128 of the duration of a whole note (hence the name). It lasts half as long as a sixty-fourth note (or hemidemisemiquaver). It has a total of five flags or beams.

Notes this short are very rare in printed music, but not unknown. They are principally used for brief, rapid sections in slow movements. For example, they occur in the first movement of Beethoven's Pathétique Piano Sonata (Op. 13), to notate rapid scales. Another example is in Mozart's Variations on Je suis lindor, where many of them are used in the slow twelfth variation.

Answer was Johann Strauss II (October 25, 1825 – June 3, 1899), also known as Johann Baptist Strauss or Johann Strauss, Jr., the Younger, or the Son.
