Emil Niklaus Von Reznicek (1860-1945)

Balletmusik and Walzerzwschenspiel from the opera Donna Diana

Donau Philharmonie Wien
Manfred Mussauer, director

Today, Reznicek is remembered mainly for the overture to his opera Donna Diana, composed in 1894. The overture is a popular stand-alone piece at symphony concerts and also served as the theme for the American radio (1947-1955) series Challenge of the Yukon, which later migrated to the TV series (1955-1958) Sergeant Preston of the Yukon. It was also used in the 1950s on the BBC's Children's Hour by Stephen King-Hall for his talks on current affairs.
