Eisner doen't need your money!

(3 out of 5 stars)
"If you wan the "Fantasia" experience on a budget, or you have moral objections to giving Eisner too much money, then this CD is for you. It is the entire "Fantasia" super-symphony culled from the archives at Naxos. Consequently, it does not have a continual level of quality. Directors, musicians, and recording equipment change from suite to suite, which can be hard on people with Brian Wilson "dog ears."
The only noticeable difference is on "Toccata And Fugue In D Minor." Instead of a full Stokowski orchestra, we get the solo organ version. If you want to be true to Bach on his own terms, this should not be a problem. However, if you wanted the full string and woodwind treatment, you may have to break down and cross Eisner's palm with silver.
Aside from this one difference (and a slight warble on the open note to "Toccata and Fugue," which may be a copying error) everything you heard in the movie is here. This is an enjoyable collection of Classical hits, great for cutting one's teeth on, or for a home schooler."
