Notes & Reviews:

Johann Strauss II earned the title of "Waltz King" with over 500 waltzes, polkas, several operettas and a ballet. The incomparable Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra bring refinement and sparkle to these works like no other orchestra.



Reviews

Whipped Creme
Tons of Viennese whipped creme, performed with a style that could never be matched today. Bohm was one of the last of the Old Lions of the European Central tradition. Today's orchestras are just as good. However, the conductors have lost the feel.
