JOHANN STRAUSS II (1825-1899): Aschenbrödel - Complete Ballet Music.
Catalogue Number: 11U038
Reference: 777 950-2
Description: Born from an 1898 competition for a ballet subject with Strauss composing the music, Aschenbrödel was left unfinished and partially orchestrated at the composer’s death. Ballet and operetta composer Josef Bayer (1852-1913) did a lot of work on the score, including writing his own music in parts, but what we have here is a reconstruction of Strauss’ original intentions. So there are now 99 more minutes of The Waltz King’s music available for modern consumption! 2 CDs. Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra; Ernst Theis.
