 One of teh best recordings of the Strauss family  November 3, 2014
By K. BAKER (HEBER CITY, UT) -- See All My Reviews
This set almost includes two of the three greatest New Year's Concerts, Karajan and Carlos Kleiber (1989). Kleiber 1992 is missing. Karajan is #3. You get the complete Karajan concert on DVD. Its a gem. Unfortunately, the 81 minute Kleiber concert is edited, but well worth while to hear some of the finest Strauss ever recorded, including absolutely perfect performances of the Fledermaus Overture, the Blue Danube Waltz, and the Radetsky March. The other two CDs feature highlights from several concerts with various conductors, mostly Lorin Maazel who often reaches the standards set by Kleiber and Karajan (and has better sound). If you don't have much Strauss or you want an introduction, this is a 'don't miss'. If you are collector of Karajan or Kleiber (the BBC took a poll of the world's top 100 living conductors and asked them, "who is or was the greatest conductor?" Kleiber was #1. Bernstein was #2. In his entire career, Kleiber conduced 94 concerts. In his first year with the NY Philharmonic, Bernstein conducted 116 concerts), this is decent buy because you get a lot of bonus stuff. As for me, I have a lot of Strauss-- 5-6 linear feet of shelf space, so I didn't buy this until it was on sale for $10. As for $17, you be the judge. Report Abuse

 Perfect February 5, 2013
By Edward G. (Falmouth, MA) -- See All My Reviews
If you are feeling Strauss-deficient, this will heal the pain -- and provide infusions of other waltz, polka, march and other good feelings. Buy it for New Year's Eve, party or not, and you'll be up and whirling about in no time. Fine sound, fine performances and, especially, good sequencing: it couldn't be better. Report Abuse
