Across 12 CDs, this Sony Classical Masters collection brings together Stolz’s recordings of waltzes, marches, polkas and other dances by Johann Strauss I and II, Joseph Lanner, Carl Michael Ziehrer and others. These recordings date from the 1960s and 70s, some 70 years into Stolz’s career. “Stolz belies his years in no uncertain fashion,” Read more wrote Gramophone of some of these recordings. Read less

 I could have danced all night February 17, 2018 By Roger S. (Ithaca, NY) See All My Reviews "If you enjoy Viennese waltzes, the set is self-recommending. It includes music by many Strauss's, Johann I and II, Josef, and Oscar, Joseph Lanner, and several other composers. If this is not the complete works of any of them, after a dozen well-packed CDs you likely will not miss the Mule Skinner Waltz. I first became acquainted with Robert Stolz on a two LP set of Johann II waltzes on the BASF label. I was familiar with BASF from their audio tape. Stolz conducted operettas and Viennese music for most of his 94 years, finally hanging it up in 1975. I bought the set for Stolz, but at the price offered for very good performances, you cannot go wrong." Report Abuse
