"....this is a good choice. I really enjoyed these interpretations of Strauss's waltzes, polkas, and overtures. They are very crisp and up-tempo, yet expressive. I believe these renditions are very faithful to the festive mood that the composer intended. The title track, the overture to Die Fledermaus, is perfect, in my opinion. This is a very enjoyable CD to listen to, a very high standard both musically and technically. If you're trying to sort out a Strauss CD containing many of his familiar compositions from the many that are available, this one is highly recommended."
