Fennell Finds Gold on the Beach
W. Voigt | Troy, Michigan USA | 07/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1994 recording of Frederick Fennell and the Dallas Wind Symphony is nothing short of outstanding. It combines Broadway and classical pieces with a wide variety of just plain entertaining fare. Beguine for Band highlights the mellow sounds of woodwinds sprinkled with the excitement of brass and percussion. The Chorus Line medley is Broadway all the way. Numerous seldom heard but utterly enjoyable pieces round out the album. It is sure to delight anyone who has played in a high school or college band. But its entertainment value is not limited to those folks. It's a good choice for everyone who wants to add fun to their music listening."
Fennell's masterpieces extend beyond Tokyo

"Fennell has produced the most extraordinary recordings with the Tokyo Kosei winds and this cd is no exception. I purchased this cd to get a wider view of his conducting brilliance. Every song is played with perfection (besides a few trumpet blips on A Chorus Line Medley). If you have never heard Carmen Dragon's version of America the Beautiful you must. Having played it several times it is a wonderfully composed piece. The Dallas brass ring triumphant throughout this cd. And the woodwinds are exceptional. This is a great value and you must purchase it if you are a fan of wind ensemble music. The disc is full of energetic pieces typical of Fennell's music selections."
