Dance Music From Old Vienna
H. Whitebred | S. Chatham, MA USA | 08/29/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Just great! I had attended schule (school) in Wien (Vienna) and it reminded me of when we could sit in the Weinstube and listen to the local orchestra...and drink, of course! LOVE Lanner!"
Not the best

"Unfortunately the Tanzquartett Wien chose to pursue the "interpretive" route in performance. The result is a sloppy, easy-listening style which exemplifies the Italian peculiarity of Tempo rubato (stolen time).

For elevator or cafe music, I suppose one could do worse. For actual ballroom music in true Vienna period style, to which one could actually dance waltzes, forget it.

Try instead the excellent performances by the late Willi Boskovsky and his ensemble. Sadly, many of these are not in current issue. The used/collector's aftermarket within this retailer are a good source from which I have obtained CDs of many of Boskovsky's works."
