 A Delightful DVD from Old Vienna March 12, 2013 By David Morrison (Bentleigh, Victoria) See All My Reviews "When Willi Boskovsky conducted the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra all those years ago he displayed his great talent as a musician and conductor along with his charming personality. The tracks are mainly of the Strauss family gems but others as well. Willi takes the viewer on a most enjoyable journey of the 'sights' around Vienna including some ballet. I'll be playing this DVD over and over." Report Abuse
 Lovely to listen to. February 26, 2013 By Joyce B. (Courtice, Ontario) See All My Reviews "This DVD is well worth purchasing. The music is very well done and the background scenery is excellent. We enjoyed every minute of the disc." Report Abuse
 Wonderful musical picture of Vienna February 12, 2013 By William B Wemple (Williamsburg, VA) See All My Reviews "This video is worth the price just for the music. Period costumes and scenarios throughout Vienna and the surrounding countryside add to its charm. If you've been to Vienna, this will help bring back some of the nicest remembrancs." Report Abuse
