A new waltz from Master Classics, Johann Strauss Jr.'s "Tales From The Vienna Woods" (1868) is an orchestral mood ring. Dramatic shifts in timbre and spirit inform the first movement: bold and aggressive at times, removed at others, working slowly to a resounding climax. Suddenly, the piece rallies in the reprise, the melody at the forefront, and the orchestra ringing and swinging with robust exuberance.
