William Tell & Other Favoorite Overtures Cincinnati Pops
Fantastic Fantastic . I've listened to The Overture to Poet & Peasant since my mother introduced it to me 60 years ago. It is still on my top 10 of all time. The other 6 were also in the 5 -star group.
Great collection of work
Good price for a great collection of work, and by the way, Overture to William Tell always starts out slow, it's a 12 and a half minute Overture, not some television theme song.
Close, oh so close! But...
Face it, what you're looking for in this album is how well he does The William Tell Overture. Let me put your mind to rest: not well. The first 3 movements are, well, moving. But the 4th movement, the "Lone Ranger" theme, starts out entirely too slow. Towards the end of the movement Kunzel can no longer hold back the enormous pent-up energy and the orchestra careens in a mad dash to the finish. A BIG disappointment. Too bad too since his "Poet and Peasant" is inspired. Oh well...
