"Heard it on the radio, not knowing who was playing. It was the most revealing, luscious performance of the Rosenkavalier Waltzes we had ever heard. Nice to discover at the end that it was our home symphony. Just ordered the CD so I cannot comment on the other contents."
Most thrilling version

"Like your first and only other reviewer, I heard the Waltz Sequence (don't know if it was #1 or #2) on the radio, unaware of who was playing. I paid close attention at the end to find out, and was very surprised. I come from Bavaria, and Strauss' music is in my blood. I can truly say that this single audition impressed me as the most thrilling of ALL I've heard. Generally, this kind of music is mastered only by natives but it looks like these Americans "got it." BRAVO! I'll buy the record with my next order (I have not heard the other selections, but the waltzes suffice)."
