 Excellent Performances and Sound October 16, 2012 By E. Fisch (Granada Hills, CA) See All My Reviews "If you like Lehar you should have this. Boskovsky knows just the right touch, the perormances are excellent, and the sound is great." Report Abuse
 Lehars & Romance September 19, 2012 By J. DOKSANSKY (FREMONT, NE) See All My Reviews "It is difficult to find a collection of one composer who embodies the romantic era as expressed by the waltz. The Straus family being the exception. One can "feel" the romance of his compositions. This recording with the full bodied orchestra makes it possible. Lehar lets you feel the free movement of the rythmes. Willi Boskovsky lets you feel the enjoyment of the melodies." Report Abuse
