Listening to an album by conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, even in his ninth decade, is a bit like attending a Richard Pryor show: you know you're going to be outraged at some point, but you're also going to get a radically new perspective on the subject matter. So it is with this Waltz Revolution, which the invigorated Sony Classical label deserves kudos for issuing. Hearing the album, you are in a world that's just about as far as possible from New Year's Eve Viennese waltz specials on television. Johann Strauss II. Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Concentus Musicus Wien. 11. Erste Kettenbrücke-Walzer, Op.
Harnoncourt seems to put Mozart first largely because their instrumentation, with winds and percussion, works well to set up the main attraction, namely the performances of Strauss and Lanner with Concentus Musicus Wien. As usual with Harnoncourt, you may like or hate these, but the album is undeniably fresh, with lots of music that has rarely been heard outside Austria. Sample the familiar Radetzsky March, Op. 228, of Strauss I for an idea of what's happening.
Harnoncourt, who more than any other conductor of our time represents a revolution in the way works are performed and in the reception of music, traces the line from the dances of Mozart to 19th-century dances that were profoundly characteristic of the society of that time.

Harnoncourt’s Concentus Musicus Wien forsake their usual Baroque repertoire and tune their period instruments to the waltzes, polkas, galops and marches of Mozart, Lanner and Johann Strauss - including newly unearthed jewels. The performances are sinuous yet nuanced, the pacing just sedate enough to reveal fascinating detail and the revelations - Strauss’s Chain Bridge Waltz and an early version of the Radetzky March - startling and delightful. The Vienna Philharmonic’s New Year’s Day concert will seem even more hackneyed after this. Sony Classical; out now).
