Greatest Songs from the Musicals
Greatest Songs from the Musicals
Pretty good musical mix
Lots of great and clear vocals. I was looking for a musical mix and this has a nice sampling of many major songs but also some more recent stuff. I haven't purchased an import before but I would do it again if the opportunity presented itself. It is somewhat annoying to have three cds when I think it could have fit onto two. Still, more than I have complaints, I have compliments about it.
Rainbow Body / Blue Cathedral / Symphony 1 / Appalachian Spring Suite
Every once in a while, after sorting through the seemingly endless piles of contemporary American composers, you find a new composer that restores your faith in American music, which often seems to be a lost cause. This cd is one of those. Theofanidis comes forth as a brand new, amazingly talented composer whose music is simply breathtaking. Rainbow Body is a true masterpiece. Beginning in the ...
Tenors on Tour
Tenors on Tour - Versatile and Beautiful
Tenors on Tour is a CD which will live forever. The opening songs by Placido Domingo, His arrangement of Blue Moon and Moon River, set the tone for the CD. To hear Richard Tucker do "Climb every Mountain" was a wonderful trip down memory lane. Who will ever forget him? Placido continues with Broadway..Maria from West Side Story and a Beatles song "Yesterday". Mandy Patinkin's "Over the Rainbow" ...
Mantovani at the Movies
Universal UK, 2005
Movies and Mantovani Make Magnificent Musical Memories.
In this year in which fans celebrate Mantovani's 100th birthday, another excellent British compilation of some of the great maestro's original recordings has been released. The tracks on this CD come predominantly from Mantovani's 1957 bestselling LP, Film Encores, his 1959 Film Encores Volume 2, and his 1967 LP entitled "Mantovani/Hollywood." Up until now, the six tracks from the Hollywood LP ...
Terry Riley: A Rainbow In Curved Air
Meditative, with a subtle rhythmic element
I found my first exposure to the music of American minimalist composer Terry Riley (and minimalism as a genre), to be extremely rewarding. As a fan of 1970s progressive rock and electronica, I am a little surprised that I did not explore the genre sooner, given that there is so much overlap between audiences of progressive and minimalism...well, at least there was overlap back when both styles ...
Symphonic Music of the Rolling Stones
RCA Victor, 1994
Best CD I own.
I've had this CD for what seems like a lifetime now, and I still can't put it away. By far the most timeless CD I own.
The Irish Tenors
Music Matters, 2001
How Are Things In Glocca Morra?
Long a fan of Irish music, I have turned to a series of artists to satiate my appetite. Bing Crosby and John McCormick have been succeeded by the Irish Tenors. This CD has a bit more of an Irish American theme as "Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears" and "God Bless America" illustrate. Interspersed among these tunes are traditional Irish tunes such as "Macushla" and "Croppy Boy", along with newer ...
Broadway - The American Musical (PBS Series)
George M. Cohan
Fabulous for any Broadway-lover
Packs into 5 CD's a sampling of Broadway tunes from the 20's thru (almost) today, mostly from original cast recordings. Includes not just well-known hits, but also some lesser-known gems. Sound quality is first rate, booklet is informative too. Have given this as a gift to several friends with rave reviews.
Puttin' on the Ritz: The Great Hollywood Musicals
If you like great musicals you'll love this!
Eric Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops have done it again. This is a spectacular collection. It makes you feel like getting dressed up with a lot of glitz and glam and going dancing. Though I must admit that Fredrica Von Stade's rendition of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" will definitely touch your heart.
The Movie Album Classical Pictures; John Bayless
Luis Enrique Bacalov
Angel Records, 1996
Gorgeous arrangements. Very dramatic and melodic.
Don't be scared off by the "clown-like" picture on the cover. This album, by a true piano virtuoso/arranger, blends familiar movie and light classical melodies together into unique arrangements. Every time it's been on while I have guests, someone always asks "What's that beautiful music?"
River City Brass Band
Joseph Wilcox Jenkins
Brass at its best
If there is a better brass band in the U.S. than the River City Brass Band, I don't know who it would be or how they could be. These people are stunning players, so well-rehearsed and virtuousic as to cause a brass player (me) to shake his head in amazement. Their ensemble playing is terrific, but so, too, are their solos. They play parts on the cornet (or...) that would be difficult on a ...
Telarc Classical Sacd Sampler 2
Telarc Classical Sacd Sampler
Great surround album.
Not into the review thing too much. I like classical, I am a broadcast engineer who appreciates high quality recordings played on a hifi system. This disk could be boring to those who listen to this on a turd stereo.
Early American Choral Music 2
His Majestie's Clerkes
Hmf Classical Exp., 2002
The Better of the two
I have both disc in the series. I liked the music on this disc much more than the first. The selections seem more focused and the sounds are much clearer. Also, the particular pieces fit better together. I love the sound of this group and hope they make more in the future.
Ballads/Solo Jazz Standards
Angel Records, 1996
Andre Previn has always been an underrated jazz pianist. Because of his astonishing variety of successes as a classical conductor, pianist and composer; a film composer; a songwriter; and a performer of romantic cocktail music, he has been eyed suspiciously by the jazz community. In fact, his Tatum-like virtuosity, and his wildly unique and often playfully humorous piano style has made him one of ...

N.Y.C. Opera Orchestra

Living a Dream
Third album inside eighteen months from new classical crossover sensation Jenkins follows 2004's 'Second Nature'. Acting for the first time as co-producer, here she tackles a similar mix of fare as before. There are opera arias, including some usually sung by men; classic easy listening and show tunes; Welsh folk and a "classicized" version of Dolly Parton's 'I Will Always Love You', translated into Italian. Universal. 2005
Music From the Films / Film Encores
Dutton Labs UK, 2005
The All-time Best Selling Mantovani LP is now on CD!
When the LP entitled Film Encores Volume I was released in stereo in 1957, Mantovani was already established as one of the world's best selling recording artists. Film Encores, however, became the maestro's most successful recording in the United States, reaching number one and remaining on the Billboard charts for two years. Now you can hear this phenomenal gold record in its entirety on CD and ...
