The full title of this disc is "The Essence of Viennese Music - opera, operetta and dance..". Rather cumbersome, but a fair description of the contents. It is played by an orchestra from Linz, Austria's third city, with a conductor (Peter Guth) who specialises in music of Johann Strauss II and a pair of excellent young soloists in soprano Edith Lienbacher and tenor Herbert Lippert. While its programme contains many of the expected Viennese lollipops, it goes beyond the merely predictable, and the producers have come up with a diverse and very entertaining concert.
