Wiener Philharmoniker On Holiday (2CD)

Deutsche Grammophon
Current Stock:
Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra

Released to coincide with the Vienna Philharmonic"s tour of Australia, this 2CD set offers a glimpse of this great orchestra in lighter vein. There is, of course, the obligatory Strauss: the Blue Danube in a gorgeous and very rare recording by Karl Böhm, the Tales from the Vienna Woods, in a recording by Willi Boskovsky who, for many years, led the orchestra from the violin for the celebrated and ongoing series of annual New Year"s Day concerts.
