Notes and Editorial Reviews

These are the classic EMI Recordings of the Strauss family conducted by Willy Boskovsky and The Johann Strauss Orchestra of Vienna. (6 CD set)

Willi Boskovsky was one of the great exponents of the Viennese waltz and a great champion for the Strauss family. In this smartly packaged 6-disc set, the marvelous tunes flow as freely as the champagne poured in the elegant palaces that were home to this music in the 19th century. It's a Strauss lovers' dream.
