Anton Karas- Vienna, City of Dreams
Some of you may know Anton Karas from his intoxicating score to Carol Reed's, "The Third Man" (a re-recording of the theme is featured here). If you know that then you'll have a good idea of what to expect here, and while the tracks featuring more instrumentation are very good, I've gotta say I prefer the solo zither tracks. I've never been to an Austrian Wine Garden, but outdoors, wine, and music like this seems like a perfect combination. I love music that makes drinkers feel classy, plus the zither is just a really cool sounding instrument, and Karas is an incredible performer.
