There's a recording of the Allegro Fantastique with Johannes Wildner, not on Marco Polo, that has the performance note "Austrian premiere." It must be a real rarity, as that was the only recording available until this concert.

Will have to catch this on streaming to hear some of the rarities like "Heldengedichte".

A piece is worth your attention, and is itself for you praiseworthy, if it makes you feel you have not wasted your time over it. (SG, 1922)

For those who missed the New Year concert from Vienna, which largely show-cased Josef Strauss (1827-1870), there is a very good video of the broadcast (although for some reason or other the Josef Hellmesberger II's "Glocken-Polka und Galop" appears to be silent - perhaps there was copyright on the bells). As usual, I could do without the ballet sequences but the virtuosity that this music demands is evident: when they're doing second violin on the off-beat in a quick polka it's a bloody wonder that their arms don't simply fall off...
