Notes & Reviews:

Characteristic Viennese waltzes, polkas and overtures represent some of the best moments from Viennese Night Prom concerts spanning a vintage period in their history. Classics featured on this DVD include the Blue Danube Waltz, Radetzky March and Csárdás and Laughing Song from Die Fledermaus, all performed with exuberance, good humor and panache by three conductors well suited to the genre

MusicWeb International
This DVD contains six visits to the BBC Proms in successive years, some visits of shorter duration than others, to catch performances of Viennese classics given a local English accent. Most performances are in the hands of James Loughran and the Hallé, but there's a bonus of a single performance by János Fürst with the old BBC Northern, and the considerable pleasure of seeing Walter Süsskind in six outings with both the BBC Symphony and the Royal Philharmonic.

Fanfare
If the word "delightful" were used to describe a classical music video, this would be the one. All are performed with affection and warmth. But the key to enjoyment here is, to a large degree, the audience. You might think that this is, or should be, irrelevant to your experience with the music, but in fact it is central to it. You feel like you are there - and you certainly cannot help smiling.
