58 pic - StraussThis week’s CD, on the ABC Classics label and supplied to us by station sponsor Universal Music Australia, is titled ‘Johann Strauss – waltzes and Arias, featuring the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra under Marko Letonja, and soprano Lorina Gore.

The CD includes much-loved music from the golden age of the Viennese waltz, the dazzling music of Johann Strauss, father and son. Both Johann Strauss and his son Johann Strauss II were, in turn, known as ‘the waltz king’, and their music turned them into household names across Europe.
