A Remarkable Collection: Party Time
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The parties and popular dance music of the 19th century were different than our own party music, of course. But don't let this throw you off. Classical music, in every category, whether serious or festive, is always beautiful and recommendable. If you are a fan of classical music, and also enjoy partying, Strauss waltzes are always the best medicine. His jovial tunes, charming, endearing, playful and romantic, have captivated people for more than a century now. The greatest and most famous of all Johann Strauss waltzes (Johann II) is his Blue Danube Waltz- used in such films as 2001: A Space Odyssey, and epitomizes the waltz form. Other waltzes that must be heard, for their elegance and their charm, are Roses From The South, the waltz-overture from his operetta Die Fledermaus (Strauss operettas each have at least one waltz or polka, and I highly recommend u listen to them), The Artists' Life, Vienna Blood, Tales From The Vienna Blood, Voices Of Spring and the Emperor's Waltz. This collection has a great variety of Strauss waltzes that are sure to lift your spirits and make you long for long, romantic evenings in old Vienna."
