The music of the Strauss family is justifiably famous, but many other talented composers were producing popular music of comparable quality in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Drawn from a unique collection of original archive material compiled by The Johann Strauss Society of Great Britain, much of which has been reconstructed or orchestrated by John Georgiadis, this first volume of two presents world première recordings of works by many undeservedly forgotten central European light music composers.

Our vast, complete Johann Strauss II Edition and numerous titles dedicated to the Strauss family on the Marco Polo label stand as uniquely monumental and significant resources, keeping alive a musical era of joyous entertainment and the glamour of the ballroom. The sheer wealth of this album’s stylishness and novelty will prove irresistible to the many fans of this era.
