Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra - Wanderlust

Verdi called Johann Strauss II a ‘colleague and genius’, while Johannes Brahms admitted that of all his fellow composers he was ‘the only one I envy’. From the remotest parts of South America to the large concert halls of Japan, people in all parts of the world are still enthralled by the ‘fascination of Strauss’.
This digital remastered album – recorded by the leading Strauss ensemble with an authentic orchestra of 42 musicians – provides proof that this music is as full of life and genius and as up to date as ever.

In addition to the newly released CDs, the Vienna Johann Strauss Orchestra has set itself the goal of maintaining historically valuable recordings with the most important conductors of the past 55 years. The present recording from 1998 is a testament to the liveliness efforts.

Rudolf Streicher is a well-known and very dedicated conductor; he studied violin and conducting with professors Köferl, Rabitsch-Göllerich and Robert Schollum at the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz, as well as with Professor Ruppert Doppelbauer in Graz during his technical training as a toolmaker. In well over a hundred performances with orchestral and choir associations, he gained practical experience with the youth orchestra of the VÖST in Linz, various church choirs, the university orchestra and university choir of the Montanuniversität Leoben and the symphony orchestra of the Musikfreunde Stockerau.

This CD, which appears on the orchestra’s own newly founded label, is the first in a series of high-quality Strauss recordings which will appear regularly from now on. For this recording the conductor Rudolf Streicher has produced these outstanding and particularly authentic recording.
