Format: Audio CD
The five Naxos volumes of “Famous Waltzes, Polkas, Marches and Overtures” by Johann Strauss II are, I assume, collated from the Marco Polo edition of the complete works of Strauss and have been published at full price. Strauss was, of course, first and foremost a composer of dance music, but listening to this series makes it perfectly obvious that he was a lot more than that; perhaps it is no wonder that Brahms was said to be one of his admirers.

This fourth volume starts with the superb and very well-known “Kaiserwalzer”, the CSR Symphony Orchestra from Bratislava in Slovakia giving a more than acceptable performance under the able baton of Ondrej Lénard. The other eight pieces of the program cannot quite compete with this, but all are nevertheless highly entertaining, and I did not notice any variations in the quality between the three orchestras (the Polish State Philharmonic plays the Carnival’s Ambassador-Waltz and six titles are performed by the CSSR State Philharmonic from Kosice, a provincial orchestra which seems to have benefited greatly from its co-operation with Alfred Walter and here sounds on a par with the other two ensembles). The quality of the recorded sound is, by early Naxos standards, very good.
