this cd rox!!!
i luv this cd cause it is fun listening to songs that i usually hear a full orchestra listen to. now, it's just a tuba! :-) my favorite songs are: pictures at an exhibition, the planets, and ride of the valkyries. this cd is totally worth it if you enjoy famous pieces of orchestra music or enjoy tuba!
This is a great CD!
I love all of the songs, and since I play the Tuba this CD gives me some examples of how I should be sounding when I play. Or on the other this is just a fun CD to listen to!
Last Track SKIPS!!
While this recording is extremely helpful for a brass player studying the orchestral excerpts, I find it highly annoying that the last track near the end of the CD skips so badly that you cannot hear most of what Gene is talking about. It seems he is wrapping up the whole CD with some final thoughts and you miss out on it entirely!! I wrote to iTunes and was told that they will not offer me a refund... they didn't even read my email, I don't want a refund I want a clean track so I can hear what Gene is saying at the end of the CD!!! Gene went to the trouble of putting his thoughts on this CD and iTunes messed it up. Save yourself the annoyance, buy a hard copy.
