Notes & Reviews:

From one of the most famous 19th-century families of musicians and known as "The Strauss of Berlin", Hungarian-born Josef Gung'l toured widely with his orchestras, and the series of 61 concerts they gave at Hasselbacken, Stockholm in 1871 became one of the greatest events in the history of music in Sweden. This program recreates such an evening at Hazel Hill, with waltzes such as Gung'l's memorial to Johann Strauss I, Die Immortellen, dances by celebrated contemporaries, and nephew Johann's famous march En Avant! Mika Eichenholz is frequently engaged as guest conductor with Swedish and Finnish orchestras, in addition to return engagements with orchestras in Eastern Europe, Austria and South America. He has a steady relationship with the Kazan State Opera, with which he has toured in Europe on a regular basis with singers from the Bolshoy and Mariinsky Theatres.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Eichenholz recorded a nice Strauss Sr disc for Naxos some years ago, and I'm glad to report that this new release is also pleasant listening. He doesn't lead as if all these pieces are Viennese. He recognizes stylistic matters and is alert to tempos and rhythmic nuances. These performances are leisurely but always sparkling. The booklet contains good, extensive biographical notes about the composers and bios of the conductor and his responsive orchestra, all in small print.
