Hasse: Marc Antonio e Cleopatra
Johann Adolf Hasse
Dorian Sono Luminus, 2010
Dorian Sono Luminus invites you to a night at the opera with this 2 CD release of Adolf Hasse's serenata Marc Antonio e Cleopatra, performed by the Houston based ensemble Ars Lyrica. This serenata (or 'serenade'), follows a love story for the ages of lovers from different worlds, loyal to their countries, but more loyal to each others love. Founded in 1998 by harpsichordist and conductor Matthew Dirst, ARS LYRICA HOUSTON has begun to make a name ...
Respighi: The Pines of Rome; The Fountains of Rome; Roman Festivals
The Ultimate Roman Trilogy
Well, what can I say? Charles Dutoit's rendition of Respighi's Roman Trilogy ranks among the finest. The orchestral emotions give out a spine-tingling sensation. The sound quality is beyond excellent. Tension is high and tedium is low. I'd have to say congratulations to Decca/London for giving us this fabulous creation. Pini di Roma: I first heard this in the movie Fantasia 2000, and I just ...
Respighi: Pines of Rome; The Birds; Fountains of Rome
Sparkling, scintillating brilliance . . . chiaroscuro beauty
This review applies to the works -Pines of Rome-, -The Birds-, and -Fountains of Rome- performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Louis Lane on Telarc. Listening and enjoyment and enthusiasm are all subjective elements which can't be "quantified" for everyone's satisfaction. I can only say that I have "perfectionist" ears and eyes, so I have real trouble finding personally ...
The Silk Road: A Musical Caravan
Afghan / Tajik Traditional
Smithsonian Folkways, 2002
This anthology is an outstanding survey of the northern section of the so-called Silk Road, taking us from Turkey, Azerbaijan,and Iran, through Uzbekistan, southern Siberia, China, and finally to Japan, but not in order, as the CD set is organized instead by category of musical function and the localities seem random. Although there are significant gaps in the styles, and I particularly miss the ...
Homage Au Passe
Pine Leaf Boys
Lionsgate Records, 2009
This is the third pine leaf boys cd I own and I love all 3 of them. I highly recommend if you like traditional cajun music.

The Best Of Gilbert And Sullivan
At the end of the 19th century (1870's, 80's and 90's) the compatible duo of librettist and composer Gilbert and Sullivan popularized the pre-Broadway entertainment of Savoy opera. These were light operas or operettas whose content was satire and comedy, full of bouncy melodies and beautiful singing, highly entertaining theatrical works staged at London's Savoy theatre. Gilbert and Sullivan did ...
The Complete Piano Music of Scott Joplin [Box Set]
Scott and Daniels, Charles N. Joplin
Great Deal on Great Music
We love this collection and it came at such a reasonable price. Our ten month old also seems to enjoy it, especially "Maple Leaf Rag".
Red House, 2009
Amazing, beautiful music!
Rarely does a band sound as good on a cd as they do live....this band is an exception. I can't say enough good things about their music. From the music to the lyrics, they are an all around great band. I highly advise you listen and enjoy!
Respighi: Pines of Rome, etc
Only this Respighi and nothing else.
Fritz Reiner surprises me here, despite his infamous reputation of being a tyranical, manipulative conductor whom his Chicago musicians had a hard time working with. That is because his handling of Respighi's Pines and Fountains of Rome are one of the finest recordings I've ever heard. There are the usual trademarks of precise and exciting playing, as demonstrated by the piece, pines by Villa ...
Icons Among Us: Jazz in the Present Tense
IndiePix Films, 2010
visually stunning jazz documentary
This is a beautifully filmed documentary that captures the energy, improvisational spirit, and daring attitude of today's jazz musicians. The film shows live jazz being made in a variety of venues and reveals the breadth of the art form - from small "serious" jazz clubs to massive festivals to concert halls to basements, recording studios, front porches, computer labs, etc. You gotta respect the ...
Tangled in the Pines
Dualtone Music Group, 2004
A Breath of Fresh Pine-scented Air!
I read about this group in a local music rag and figured I'd take a taste. What a treat! BR5-49 is real straight-ahead country/rockabilly without any pretentions! Nice, clean uncluttered production, and top notch songwriting! They prove that even without a Brian Setzer (who I love, by the way), you can put together a really happening rockabilly band. I'd love to see them live.
Fantasia 2000: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack
Walt Disney Records, 1999
My favorite piece of music ever is "Rhapsody in Blue" and I've managed to collect quite a few versions of it over the years. This is the absolute best recording of "Rhapsody in Blue" I have ever heard! I'm listening to it on a constant loop tonight. The entire record is great as is the other soundtrack from "Fantasia." The movie is a wonderful way to get kids exposed to classical music without ...
The Saddle Club - Adventures at Pine Hollow
Warner Home Video, 2002
The Saddle Club - Adventures at Pine Hollow
Excellent movie! My grandchildren love it, even the 4 yr old. I intend on buying more of the series. The story line is one of happiness and sadness, but it is done in such a way that it is beautiful. I recommend it!
Peter, Paul and Mary: The Solo Recordings (1971-72)
Title is available on-line
As of 6-October-2009, this title can be ordered on Barnes & Noble's website for about $25.50. I am very much looking forward to receiving this exciting release and will honor Mary Travers' memory by enjoying her solo work.
Pines of Rome / Fountains of Rome / Roman Festival
Angel Records, 1990
Different views from different publications
Riccardo Muti's recording of Respighi's "Roman Trilogy" with the Phildelphia Orchestra has had different views from different publications over the years. A 1986 review in STEREO REVIEW referred to Muti's recording as "Spectacular", but a 1996 AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE review called it "over-rated, and a recording with no real bass" (referring to the engineering). I tend to view it in a more ...
Alligator in the Elevator
Pine Point, 1998
Who doesn't love Rick Charette? My 2 year old loves this CD...especially the song, "I love mud".
Sousa: Marches; Band of HR Royal Marines; Lt. Col. G.A.C. Hoskins
John Phillip Sousa
Lt. Col. G. A. C. Hoskins
EMI Classics, 2004
Sousa By the Royal Marines
This is a great CD re-issue of the Band of the Royal Marines School of Music under Graham Hoskins. This band did a three LP series on Sousa marches some years ago that was better than most on this very well covered topic. Sousa march recordings will always come and go, but some like this stand out more than others. For one, there is nothing like the panache of a Royal Marines band. Their ...
Scottish Fantasies for Violin and Orchestra with Rachel Pine (2 CDs)
Pablo de Sarasate
really, really good
A very pleasant, often lively, evocative and enjoyable set of CDs. The video documentary included in the second CD tells about how Barton Pine studied Celtic/Scottish music before making her recording, and the extra work shows in her ability to render the Bruch as a far lovelier recording than any other violinst has. She finds the tensions, the delicacies and the warmth of this piece. Add to ...
In The Pines: Tar Heel Folk Songs & Fiddle Tunes: Old-Time Music Of North Carolina 1926-1936
Old Hat Records / Enterprises, 2008
Absolutely required listening for old-time music nuts!!
Great disc. The sound quality restoration is A++! No muffled sounding, over "cleaned" tracks here. Neat packaging with a neat book with some short stories about a couple of the murder ballads on the disc. Don`t be afraid of getting this. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!
Respighi: Fontane di Roma, Pini di Roma, etc / Karajan
Deutsche Grammophon, 1997
I love the Pines of Rome and find this version to be the next best after my other benchmark, Reiner's interpretation with the Chicago Symphony in the 60's. Too many conductors feel the need for excessive speed in the opening of this piece, causing it to feel hurried and rushed rather than triumphant. Karjan and Reiner are able to reign in this tendency. The playing is immaculate as well. This is ...
