CD: Strauss For Ever

Waltzes and polkas by the Strauss family are a specialty of the Vienna Boys Choir – they are in a sense their musical calling card. The choir has been singing their music since the early 1920s, and has participated six times in the traditional New Year‘s Day concert of the Vienna Philhar­ monic Orchestra.

Three pieces out of the current selection have been recorded for the very first time for this album: Matrosen-Polka (Sailors’ Polka), Bandi- ten-Galopp (Bandits’ Galop) and the eponymous For Ever. The lyrics were written for the boys from Vienna; they tell of sailors, ghosts, bandits, and hamsters – not to be taken too seriously, but to be heard and cherished For Ever.
