'Played with a controlled panache that adds extra fizz to the music’s already infectious gaiety' (Classic FM Magazine)

'The Gaudier Ensemble regularly wins rave reviews here and elsewhere. This disc easily sustains their reputation as ideal in every way. Sad must be the soul who would not be enchanted by this release' (Fanfare, USA)

'A constant delight' (Hi-Fi News)
It was in November 1839 that Vienna’s leading dance hall of the time, the Sperl, echoed to the sound of the elder Johann Strauss’s Wiener Gemüths-Walzer (‘Viennese Good-Nature Waltz’), a piece that was dedicated to the young Prince Nikolaus Esterházy (1817-1894).

Ce fut en novembre 1839 que la grande salle de bal viennoise de l’époque, le Sperl, résonna des échos du Wiener Gemüths-Walzer (« Valse de l’âme viennoise »), dédié au jeune prince Nikolaus Esterhàzy (1817-1894).
