Beautiful Korean Art Songs
Considering the status of Korean Music in the classica field, it is very understandable that this CD didn't get much publicity from media like Bartoli or Fleming's new CDs. However, in my opinion, this CD deserves some attention. Because it has beautiful art songs from Korea. You will find something new from this CD. It can be said something Oriental flavor from some songs like "mt Paek du" or ...

Not Perfect, but Definitely an Essential Performance
This performance of The Gondoliers is one of two with dialogue. The other, made in 1977 also by the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, is not accorded with the same quality of sound or the same quality of cast. It is only available through the Sounds on CD website. The normal felicities of this series are here in full. The music is done wonderfully. Thomas Round and Alan Styler are the perfect ...
The Sound of Speed
Bacchus Archives, 2003
the seminal cocktail culture composer
Finally, a stateside reissue of the seminal cocktail culture composer Bob Thompson's landmark lounge album, The Sound of Speed, has been released on CD courtesy of those pop culture archeologists at Dionysus, and the tireless efforts of Thompson's son, Spenser. The brilliant Thompson, a contemporary of such celebrated and better known RCA mood music magicians like Juan Garcia Esquivel and Henry ...

RCA Victor Europe, 1997
Caballe and other great voices
Interesting mix of talent but over all Caballe and Gino Vannelli shine. They are both superb vocalists. Also love the version of Sailing - great song. This is a great investment, especially if you are a Gino Vannelli fan.
Best of British Light Music
Excellent Sampler Disc From Important Series!
If you have always wanted to try out some of Marco Polo's British Light Music series, here is your chance, and for only pennies. This CD whets your appetite for investigating the rest of the series. At first, it seems strange that the orchestras would not be very idiomatic for this music, but the conductor makes these performances shine.There are a few favorites but many pieces that I have ...

A gorgeous CD of flute and harp music from beginning to end.
First of all this is the best recorded flute and harp recording that I have heard. Adam Abeshouse, winner of the Grammy for Best Engineer and Producer, has been aable to record these two magnificent performers in a way that no other engineer could. The music is lovely and you will want to listen to this CD over and over again. Five stars!

This Sceptred Isle
This Sceptered Isle
BBC Legends, 2000
I HAVE seen this CD and really like it.
This is a two CD set on which, though several of the cuts are edited, more than half appear in their entirety. What a splendid set they make! I've always been a fan of the musical grandeur evinced in British Imperial music. This album, particularly the first disc, offers music from this genre in spades, both instrumental and choral works. Hubert Parry's "I Was Glad" shines out in dazzling ...
Nightingale: Japanese Art Songs
The travails of life melt away listening to "Nightingale."
Yoshikazu Mera, the counter-tenor from Japan, is, perhaps, the finest classical voice I have ever heard. Now, I say "classical voice" as if I knew what I was talking about but here is what I mean: when it comes to a singer, male or female, interpreting the works of Strauss, Handel, Bach, etc., there is no finer counter-tenor in the world than Mera in my humble opinion. His command of his vocal ...

Over There - Songs From America's Wars
Newport Classic, 2003
A very good CD to buy
I have bought many CD regarding American patriotic songs but it is the one that I prefer. The songs are sung in a very classic way and so, there are easy to listen. Jon English as a tenor gives an excellent performance. On the piano, Rob Carriker gives also an excellent performance; he does not try to cover the voice of Jon English but just to support his voice. So, Jon English and Rob Carriker ...

British Light Classics 2
New London Orchestra & Ronald Corp
Hyperion UK, 1997
Second volume of a highly entertaining series.
Light orchestral works are becoming something of a lost art, but the British have excelled at them -- the form is especially popular during their annual "Proms" concerts -- and this second volume of Hyperion's popular series continues in the same high-quality vein as Volume One. Twenty pieces by some of the best British light music composers on a generously-packed 78 minute CD -- no skimping ...
Anne Sofie von Otter - Wings in the Night (Swedish Songs)
Sigurd von Koch
Deutsche Grammophon, 1996
A feeling of discovery
The songs on this wonderful Swedish anthology may not be familiar to most listeners but they occupy an idiom not so dissimilar to the world of Grieg. (Otter and Forsberg's Grieg recital from a few years earlier is also indispensible.). The nostalgia-tinged melancholy (or is it wistful joy?) of Wilhelm Peterson-Berger's folk-inspired songs, for example, convey a hint of Grieg's art yet are ...

Love Came Down at Christmas: The Christmas Music of Leo Sowerby
Albany Records, 1995
Keeps you happy in between beach vacations!
A wonderful mix of themes and "ocean" music. Great choral work, too--esp. "What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor". You have to get up and move your feet! This is a "must-have" CD for lovers of the sea.
