Notes & Reviews:
In this magnificent 11-CD box set, experience the best ballroom classical pieces performed by the Weiner Johann Strauss Orchester under famed conductor Willi Boskovsky. Composers featured in this set include Emile Waldteufel, Franz Lehar, Franz von Suppe, Joseph Lanner and Johann Strauss II. All these composers were known for their work with classical dance music such as polkas, waltzes, gallops. Ballroom Classics contains great classical dance pieces like Stauss' Radetzky March, which dedicated to the Austrian Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz and became quite a popular march among soldiers and the light hearted Champagne-polka which evokes the uncorking of champagne bottles. Many of these pieces will be familiar from the famous Vienna Philharmonic New Year's Day concerts regularly broadcast on television around the world, including Light as a Feather, Thunder and Lightning and In Krapfen's Woods.
