A delight to hear...
OK, it's only dessert, but so is a Sachertorte.
This entire series of the complete Dances and Marches has never been out of print since it issued in the '60's. Boskovsky and his VPO buddies (a kind of tripled Vienna Octet) treat these little gems with infinite respect but absolutely no reverence, so everything sparkles and dances. These folks knew how this music goes before any of them laid eyes on the scores, and it shows. The HDTT transfer is a revelation, with infinite "air" around each and all instruments, allowing one to hear any part one wishes and confirm that not one musician is phoning it in. Also, the download reproduces the imaginative arrangement of the disks, each of which combined items from different periods -- this one runs the Koechel gamut from 103 (mid teens?) to 609 (only months left on the planet). All the CD released just lined them up in order. Please, is there more? Maybe some of the later German Dance sets. . . . one can hope.
