Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Warner Music Group have chosen the masterful waltzes of Viennese composer Johann Strauss as the content on their very first foray into the cutting-edge world of DVD-Audio. Using the finest sound technology available, The DVD-Audio transforms music into an unbelievably clear and all-encompassing experience. Strauss's elegant, famous waltzes are surely worthy of this kind of sound quality, especially when conducted by the great Nikolaus Harnoncourt and performed by the world-renowned Berlin Philharmonic.
