Fiedler's Finest
M. B Hazen | Jacksonville, Fla. | 02/15/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had the opportunity of playing in an orchestra under Maestro Fiedler. He was a tough, no nonsense conductor who expected crisp, lyrical, and expressive. His musical interpretations of everything from Sabre Dance to Syncopated Clock; from Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 to his love for the Beatles, sets him as the ruler supreme in pop music. I only hope RCA will continue to reissue his LPs so a new generation knows the man and his music. Bravo!"
Arthur at his best.

"Arthur Fiedler made listening to classical music fun. Try a listen to 'Pomp and Circumstance', one of my favourite pieces of classical music. 'William Tell Overture' shines as does most of the material on this album. Well recorded for it's day. Fiedler is missed."
Scintillating music making

"This 7 disc set covers a wide range of musical styles from overtures, waltzes, marches and dances to film and popular items. The playing is wonderful and alert throughout, and also the quieter pieces are sympathetically handled. The recording is uniformly good throughout, with lovely balancing of parts and good stereo spread. Some date from the late 1950s, but all sound fresh and vibrant. A wonderful box by the Maestro with his crack orchestra!"
