There is some lovely music here.

Indeed there is! I remember when I was collecting the Marco Polo Edition being particularly excited when a volume contained a dance arrangement from one of the more unfamiliar operettas (there are an average of five from each work, usually a splendid waltz, a quadrille, a French polka, a polka-mazurka and a quick polka). The performances were always good although sometimes the tempi adopted for the quadrilles might be questioned... Back in the 1980s it was impossible to predict that so much Johann Strauss I, Johann Strauss II, Josef Strauss, Eduard Strauss, Carl Michael Ziehrer, etc. would be recorded.

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)
