Renowned conductor Yakov Kreizberg leads the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra through a musical exploration of six classic Strauss’ waltzes: Emperor Waltz, Tales from the Vienna Woods, Op.325, Artists’ Life, Op.316, Northsee Pictures, Op.390, The Beautiful Blue Danube, Op.314 and Roses from the South, Op.388. These orchestral works are rendered with admired spacing and exquisite orchestral control. Kreizberg’s touch is light and refreshing. With crystalline transparency, the recording is warm and the sound quality is superb.

"Everything from the lilting second beat to the lush sonorities and melting strings is in apple pie order. Wilfried Scharf's zither is a match for that of Anton Karas, the latter of whom played for Carol Reed's film The Third Man. The warmth of the oboe and the surrounding strings for the opening of Artists' Life proves potently effective, as are the ensuing, tripping figures in strings and winds. Wonderful sonic separation of the antiphons in the development section of this marvellous waltz." - Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition
