In the famous Café Sperl in Vienna, the musicians of The Philharmonics give visitors a concert in the colours of the traditional Vienna, with the rhythm of the waltzes composed by Johann Strauss II, arranged by three famous Viennese composers: Schoenberg, Berg and Webern. Founded by musicians of the philharmonic orchestras of Vienna and Berlin, The Philharmonics explore works from various repertoires from modern composers to popular musics, with an energy and a virtuosity that charm varied audiences.

Waltz king Johann Strauss Jr. and serial composers Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg and Anton Webern may seem to have little in common. until you play this recording and/or come to grips with the three 12 tones masters writing miniaturized versions of Strauss's most famous waltzes. Between the three modernists, they re-did five Strauss waltzes for varying chamber collections, done here by the Linos Ensemble, a group of Germans whose reductions include the Bruckner Symphony No. 7 and Mozart's woodwind arrangement to 19 movements from Don Giovanni, among others
Video Codec: AVC/MPEG-4. Get the picture? This one-hour concert features mostly best known pieces by Johann Strauss II, although arranged for chamber ensemble by the modern Viennese school of composers, Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, and Anton Webern. Thrown in are a few miniatures by violin legend Fritz Kreisler, a klezmer rendition of Yiddische Mame by group leader Tibor Kovac, and Leopold Godowsky’s timeless Alt-Wien. Perhaps, not the most thought-provoking or probing music out there, but just plain fun. Besides, you don’t get to hear a harmonium, featured in four of the works that much anymore.
Offer, The Philharmonics. Waltzes By Johann Strauss. Aarranged by Schoenberg, Berg & Webern. The Philharmonics, the ensemble founded by members of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, fill the Café Sperl with some of the most authentically Viennese sounds imaginable – the Strauss waltzes that Schoenberg, Berg and Webern arranged and performed in May 1921 to raise funds for their pioneering Society for Private Musical Performances
Schönberg, Webern, Berg: The Waltz Arrangements. Three waltzes - Rosen aus dem Süden, Lagunen Waltzer, and Kaiserwalzer - were arranged by Schoenberg, while Wein, Weib und Gesang was done by Berg, and Schatzwalzer by Webern. The arrangements are played with schmaltz, sentimentality, and buoyant tempos by the Linos-Ensemble. Although there have been other recordings of these works - the premiere recordings by the Boston Symphony Orchestra Chamber Ensemble are particularly beguiling - anyone interested in knowing what the composers of New Viennese School did for their summer vacation is urged to dive in.
