Pops and Fiedler Provide Opera to Drive in Rush Hour....

(5 out of 5 stars)
"....pop this bad boy in your vehicle tape deck or CD player and go into a world where jerky, stopping hi-way rush hour traffic or that guy in the SUV cutting in front of you does not matter.
Wagner's 'The Valkyrie' will give you some surreal moments driving in the rain--try it out. Music you know you've heard but didn't know the titles to--Bizet's Carmen, The Grand March from Aida, Puccinni's 'La Boheme'--will give you a great experience on the open road. While there are opera purists who call it blasphemy to play opera with no words and who think it is a bastardization of opera by having Authur Fiedler and the Boston Pops perform these tunes, forget them. Who knows? Mebbe playing these renditions will make you look up some of the more definitive recordings of these classics. And then you'll play opera for the sheer enjoyment and to share in the great passion. You will discover what you've been missing all these years."
