In this filmed, no-audience, concert, Paavo Järvi conducts Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, with the radiant soprano voice of Golda Schultz, in idiomatic, affectionate and very enjoyable renditions of Strauss Family favourites, adding in a guest appearance from Franz Lehár:

Well-worth the entrance fee of 9.90 Euros – you’d be cuckoo to miss out (and our avian friend looks in during Opus 336) – but the seventy-minute video is only available to watch until tomorrow, May the Fourth, at 8 p.m.
