classical music: presents
Puccini - La Boheme / Pavarotti, Scotto, Niska, Wixell, Plishka, Levine, Metropolitan Opera
Deutsche Grammophon, 2005
I found every detail of this production to be unimprovable. True, the film is old and grainy and sometimes slightly blurry. But it doesn't matter. The casting and vocals are unbeatable. I'm so glad to have seen Pavarotti in this role and in his prime, when he fully committed to everything with his whole being rather than just vocally doing so. He is superb (though he wobbles on the High C in ...
Victor Herbert - Naughty Marietta
Video Artists Int'l, 2003
Different but deeelicious!
I thought that the version with Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy could not possibly be improved. Eddy was a magnificent baritone, and Jeanette, THE Perfect Ingenue and a dang great coloratura soprano. The Academy didn't give Oscars to musicals in those days and Jeanette & Eddy in "New Moon" in the garden scene made one of the greatest love scenes ever filmed, and Jeanette should have gotten ...
Venice: A Musical Journey - A Musical Tour of the City's Past and Present
Naxos DVD, 2005
Beautiful music and scenery
I was unexpectedly pleased with this DVD. It can be used as a calming relaxation DVD or for more informational purposes. It comes with a descriptive booklet, but the same information is provided on the DVD. You can look up information about the places in each section and the musical pieces that accompany them, either in the booklet or on the DVD. There is a brief descriptive title indicating ...
Verve Presents: Very Best of Christmas Jazz
Umvd Labels, 2001
I'm The First??
I bought this cd last year and I love it!! This cd is a collection of classic performances by Verve's elite. The opening track is not Frank DeVol, who did indeed produce the track, it's Ella Fitzgerald. Another error found on this site is the artist listing for "The Christmas Song". It's Mel Torme's performance here. A couple of tracks reappear here, they were featured on Verve's release of ...
Time Life Presents: Classical Thunder
Richard [Classical] Wagner
Time Life Records, 2005
Every selection on this CD is wonderful. I can't get enough of it. My 22 year old son loves it, too, so I bought another copy just for him.
Christmas Present From Polyphony
Hyperion UK, 2004
This is an essential Christmas choral CD. The program itself is fabulous and unique, lacking the tacky "favorites" found on most recordings of this type. Entirely a cappella except for two Rutter arrangements with orchestra. Not a single track is lacking in depth and sincerity. Polyphony is one phenomenal choir. For its small size, it has truly unmatched sustaining power and control ...
Les Nubians Presents Echos
Triloka Records, 2005
A Spoken Word Triumph!
Les Nubians took a chance and stepped out into a new realm by spotlighting some of best spoken word artists on this continent and abroad, and I am loving it! The album still has that Les Nubians feel, but it is now more textured with the addition of this beautiful poetry. Every song on it is strong and evokes a feeling of being right there in the moment. It is jazzy, thoughtful, soulful, ...
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Presents Symphonic Rock: A Symphony of Hits
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
EMI Import, 2004
An Album of Symphonic Pop Hit Arrangements featuring 28 Tracks.

Billboard Greatest Christmas Hits: 1955-Present
the Chipmunks with David Seville
Rhino / Wea, 1989
Fun Christmas Music
All the songs are good on this CD. I have the cassette tape but wanted to CD also. Blue Christmas by Elvis is my favorite. This CD is just what everyone needs to be in the Christmas spirit.
Lovely Baby Music presents...Lovely Baby Classics CD
Lovely Baby Music, 2002
Lovely Baby Classics CD is not just for babies
The Lovely Baby Clasics CD is delightful and refreshing to hear. Hearing actual baby noises in the background is a clever way to attract the baby's interest. It also works for adults! The chosen selections are truly classical and therefore, educational; I enjoy listening to these classics while meditating, reading, or letter writing. This would be a wonderful (and greatly appreciated) gift ...
A Musical Journey: Florence - A Musical Tour of the City's Past and Present
Naxos DVD, 2006
Great reminder of Florence
Considering its low price, it is a great value to remind you of your trip to Florence. Everyone can have an opinion if it should include this place or the other, and it depends what sites you had time to visit, but it is a great way to sit in front of the TV, thinking: "I was there" and listening to great music. The connection between the music and the sites is kind of general, but good enough ...
Tubby the Tuba Presents Play it Happy!
Koch Records, 2006
Great gift for a Baby Boomer OR a Three yr-old
Hubby played a baritone horn in school and has taken up the Euphonium for fun as an adult. Tubby the Tuba is a fun reminder of his childhood when he was inspired to play - inspiration that reaches far into his life and can continue to inspire new generations, with a little help from parents. Great product for the young - like hearing Mozart while still in the womb. Music goes with you anywhere ...
Jazz for a Christmas Present
Jazz for a Christmas Present
Savoy Jazz, 2003
Fabulous Faux Pas!!!!!
I had never heard of Etta Jones until this magical discovery! I even listened to the cd in the store but I only read ETTA JAMES on the cover and that was the voice I heard. I have made a fabulous new friend, "Ms Etta Jones"!!!!!!!!!!
Poulenc - Melodies / Ameling · Gedda · W. Parker · Sénéchal · Souzay · Baldwin
EMI Classics, 1992
Indisputable Gallic flair
These performances are piquant and stylistically right on target. Even if Souzay is past his best here, he brings a lifetime of experience to bear and the other performers are wonderful. Ignore the curmudgeon who blasted this set. You will enjoy this tremendously if you love Poulenc.

Globe-Toddlers French Classical Music for Children
Tot Talk, Inc., 2008
Fun classic music for everyone in the family
My kids and I LOVE this CD. It has a wide range of songs that everyone can appreciate, with familiar ones spaced well among less recognizable songs to keep the attention of young children. The arrangements are distinctive, with many varied instruments playing together or highlighted as solos. We often play the "did you hear...[that instrument]?" game in our car. The CD offers a variety of ...
A Christmas Present
Curb Special Markets, 1990
My husband grew up listing to this at Chirstmas. We both love it. It really took him back to his childhood and put us both in the Holiday mood.
Great Hymns of Faith Vol. 2
St Olaf Records, 2004
I told my wife that if I was asked to define "sublime," I would play this album. For all who say that hymns are dead, this album stands to prove them wrong. The energy, the passion, the excitement, the rich harmonies and tender turns of phrase. . .makes me wish I was back in college again. I know a few are turned off by the Christmas selections, but I happen to enjoy hearing Christmas music ...
