Synopsis

Product Description
Composer John Tesh is no stranger to sports-related music. He has garnered Emmys for Best Musical Composition for his work for the Pan American Games, the Tour de France, and NBC Sports' World Track and Field Championships, and he composed music used during NBC's broadcast of the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympics.
On VICTORY, Tesh's musical prowess and love of sports come together, resulting in a collection of songs which have all been influenced in some way by playing or observing the magnificence of the major sporting event. As might be expected, these pieces resonate with energy, tension, and joy; a good example is "Barcelona," an intense, fast-moving composition with a Spanish flavor, which was inspired by the Olympic Games as well as by the city itself, and which brings both to life in Tesh's typically bold, seamlessly-produced style.

CD Reviews

Another side of John
06/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Tesh is one multi-faceted and talented musician; slow and easy candle light romance to fast-paced heart pumping. I must be one of the lucky few who own a plain white wrapper cassette recording ordered from the back of a bicyling magazine which is a prized possession of mine. You couldn't pry it from my cold dead hands! Anyone who followed his CBS Sports commentaries and soundtrack for the Tour de France in the '80s is familiar with his tremendous talent prior to his stint as host on Entertainment Tonight."

"This great CD includes the NBA sports-theme, Rounldball Rock. Some of my other favorite songs on the CD are Barcelona, Exit Mulholland and The Spanish Steps."
