If on a summer’s evening you find yourself waltzing through the park with a song in your heart, that song’s melody may well have been composed by Johann Strauss the Younger.
Ivan and Inge Berg present Johann Strauss the Younger, an audio evocation - complete with deftly interwoven selections from Strauss’s compositions - of Strauss the man and of his city, 19th-century Vienna. Richard Mayes and Marcia Warren’s narration is spirited, lovely, and punctuated with exuberant voice-overs that sound like they were recorded on the evening of a Strauss premiere. At only an hour long, this audiobook is a great introduction for a novice, or a pleasurable romp for an afficionado...and may tempt the listener into donning an evening dress or a black tuxedo.
