About

Beautiful Vienna – a city rich in history where elegance, high culture, chic and romance meet under one name: Johann Strauss

The city of Vienna salutes its famous son annually with spectacular events, including the Opera Ball held in the opulent auditorium of the State Opera and the New Year’s Concert beamed from the Musikverein around the world to an audience of millions.

Magdalen proudly pays tribute to the Waltz King with an exceptionally well-filled 2CD collection of Johann Strauss’s most famous works, performed by stars of the Staatsoper and Volksoper and musicians who conducted his works worldwide or at the New Year’s Concert. All have the music of Johann Strauss in their blood.

The cast of performers, taken from a wide variety of labels, is unrivalled: from Wanda Achsel (who often sang opposite Tauber in the 20s) to Fritz Wunderlich; from Otto Ackermann (conductor of many Columbia operetta recordings) to Bruno Walter. Clemens Krauss, Barbirolli, Karajan, Kempe, Boskovsky, Schwarzkopf, Patzak, Lotte Schöne, Gedda, Streich, Cebotari, Tauber, the list is endless.

The recordings, over one third of which are in stereo, were made between 1928 and 1961.

This is an ideal present for someone wanting an introduction to Johann Strauss or for a collector not wishing to invest in several multi-disc ‘Complete recordings of ...’ sets.
