Hooked On Classics Series

This so takes me back to my teenage and college years...ANYTHING and I mean anything in the Hooked on Classics series is the bomb...ok..yes..I know I'm dating myself...but this is truly timeless music with a modern flare. So glad they finally got it on iTunes


You Have Got to Have This If You Like Classical Music!

This is an excellent album. I have always loved classical music, and now when I first saw and heard this album, I was addicted to it. You have to buy this!


Hooked On Classics 4 (pt. 4)

...La cuarta colección de la serie Hooked On Classics es "Hooked On Classics 4 - Baroque" realizada por
"The New World Ensemble" y dirigido por Ettore Stratta con sonido diferente a las 3 primeras series; por fin compré las 4 series Hooked On Classics en iTunes a un buen precio.

About Ettore Stratta & The New World Ensemble

Chiefly during the 1990s, conductor/producer Ettore Stratta built a recording career out of recasting various brands of popular music in symphonic-style orchestral arrangements. Sometimes that meant dabbling in Latin American music (as with Symphonic Boleros, Symphonic Tango, and Symphonic Bossa Nova) and sometimes that meant choosing compatible standards from the jazz and pop worlds to create records with consistent moods (as with A Sentimental Journey and 2000's As Time Goes By: Great Love Songs of the 20th Century). He's also done more specific collections, including a tribute to sci-fi film soundtracks (Music From the Galaxies) and, oddly enough, to Elvis Presley (Symphonic Elvis, recorded -- of course -- with the Memphis Symphony Orchestra). Stratta has recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Fantasy Strings, among other groups, and showed no signs of slowing down following the turn of the millennium. ~ Steve Huey
