Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[T]his disc features arrangements of five waltzes by Johann Strauss, Jr., and it could not possibly be more listener-friendly. With its ingratiating melodies, infectious harmonies and irresistible rhythms, the music is among the most charming ever composed, and the arrangers honor that charm with transcriptions as delightful as the originals, albeit scored for much smaller ensembles... [A]nyone interested in knowing what the composers of New Viennese School did for their summer vacation is urged to try this disc. Capriccio's digital sound is crisp and clean yet atmospheric." -- James Leonard, allmusic.com [6/2009] "[T]his disc features arrangements of five waltzes by Johann Strauss, Jr., and it could not possibly be more listener-friendly.
