The most famous and enduringly successful composer of nineteenth-century light music, Johann Strauss II captivated not only Vienna but the whole of Europe and America with his abundantly tuneful waltzes, polkas, quadrilles and marches.
This unique collection brings together for the first time ever his entire orchestral output. All performances featured in this series are complete, and wherever possible, the works are played in their original instrumentation.
The Strauss Edition, originally 52 separate releases on the Marco Polo label, represented a milestone in recording history. It is celebrated by this beautiful boxed set.
