2. Unter Donner und Blitz, Op. 324 by Johann Strauss Jr

3. Bauern-Polka, Op. 276 by Johann Strauss Jr.

4. An der schönen, blauen Donau, Op. 314 by Johann Strauss Jr.

5. Der Zigeunerbaron: Einzugs-Marsch by Johann Strauss Jr.

6. Freut euch des Lebens, Op. 340 by Johann Strauss Jr.

7. Ohne Sorgen, Op. 271 by Josef Strauss

8. Mit Extrapost, Op. 259 by Eduard Strauss

9. Aquarellen, Op. 258 by Josef Strauss

Customer Reviews

The music of Johann Strauss is among my favorite.
Keith V. Weigel
I have "Tchaikovsky Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3," "Bach Orchestral Suites No. 1, 2 & 3," and "Vivaldi Four Seasons" in these discs.
Walter W. Trimble
This also confirms that it is not my disk which is at fault but that there is a general problem.

I bought three of this company's Blu-rays ... save your money and get the CD. Better yet, get an SACD version for real high-quality sound. I have "Tchaikovsky Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3," "Bach Orchestral Suites No. 1, 2 & 3," and "Vivaldi Four Seasons" in these discs. None will play in my Samsung Blu-ray player with the latest firmware. All play in my Panasonic. The sound quality is no better than standard quality 5.1 surround; in fact, I suspect they just copied the material from a standard 5.1 version. There's very little sound in the rear channels and virtually no separation. Sounds like stereo. Save your money, these are a rip-off.

I bought this album last year to test my new 7.1 channel high-end system. I have an Oppo player with full HDMI connections and the sound was good, but no better than many blu-rays, some CD's and some vinyl. The acoustics of the recording hall seemed inadequate. The performances are, in my opinion, uninspired. Rather than this, consider the blu-ray of the 2012 Vienna Philharmonic concert. The sound is better, the ballet sequences are beautiful, and the extra feature is a hoot!

It's too bad really because the recording is wonderful. Here's the problem. The leaflet that comes with the disc lists track 15 to track 20, though the description here on amazon lists only 14 tracks. I own a PS3 bluray player and thus can watch the elapsed time on my system. past track 14, my PS3 tells me that the disc is invalid, yet in the timeline there are roughly 18 minutes left which cannot be played, including some of my favorites "Unter Blitz und Donner" and the "Radetzky March". If I try to force my bluray player to go to track 15 and beyond, it will say "invalid disc".

Therefore the playing time of 84 minutes indicated here by Amazon is incorrect. it is shorter by around 18 minutes which corresponds to the additional 5 tracks that are unreadable. I am notifying Amazon about this so they can rectify their information. This also confirms that it is not my disk which is at fault but that there is a general problem.

Because this is not a cheap product, I am returning it to Amazon for a refund.
