AllMusic Review by

This is the fifth release by the Canadian Chacra label in their popular New Age of Classics series, featuring two selections from Strauss's repertoire, with each piece repeated three times. "The Blue Danube" is given an elegant electronic orchestration while "Roses from the South/Kaiserwalzer" is given similar extended treatment. Like each album in this series, ocean waves connect the pieces and wash through the music periodically. The anonymous Chacra artists who worked on this project have produced versions that remain fairly faithful to the originals while orienting them toward the creation of a relaxing ambience.
