 VIDEO: The late Austrian conductor Franz Bauer-Theussl (1928-2010) leads the Orchestra of the Vienna Volksoper in this recording, which I believe dates to the early 1970s, of Carl Maria von Weber's "Invitation to the Dance," Op. 65, as orchestrated by Hector Berlioz. I created this video from the cassette that you see above (shown near the conclusion), issued sometime in the mid-1970s by Philips as a demonstration recording of their various digital offerings.
