If you prick up your ears while listening to these recordings of genuinely Viennese music you may detect traces of the “primordial soup” of the Vienna New Year’s Concert. The sound of the album conjures up a musical portrait of a city that still today considers itself to be a “city of music”, and also is the only city of its size in the world where wine is grown. It takes less than half an hour to get from St. Stephen’s Cathedral in the center to a “Heuriger”, a traditional Viennese wine tavern where the new wine is served (also called “Heuriger”). And the drinking is accompanied by live music, if you’re lucky, the band are the Neuen WienerConcert Schrammeln. They have been making music for 20 years now, performing at wine taverns as well as at renowned concert venues. And they have succeeded in transferring the traditional Schrammel music (also enjoyed by Johann Strauss, the King of Waltz, while he was drinking his wine) into the present. So there is only one thing left to say: Best wishes – and until the next milestone anniversary! (Editor's Note)
