The arrangements, for string quartet, would have been heard all over Austria’s coffee-houses and restaurants in the 19th century, and the Tanzquartett Wien easily evoke that period. This CD sensibly mixes some energetic polkas with the more leisurely waltzes and a single Ländler to make a good representative programme. The recording and performances are both good, if not quite in the superlative league
