"Skating for Gold ... City of Prague Philharmonic ... Silva
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 04/10/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Silva America presents "SKATING FOR GOLD", The City of Prague Philharmonic and Crouch End Festival Chorus along with the London Music Works bringing classical and film music pieces to the mix, the album covers a wide selection of different moods, from Ravel's stringent "Bolero" and Satie's other worldly "Gymnopedie No.1" to modern film scores such as Thomas Newman's "Little Women" and classic sweeping film tunes such as Maurice Jarre's "Lawrence of Arabia" and Nino Rota's "Romeo and Juliet" --- Music has always been an integral part of the sport and Ice Skating Gold presents music selections from winning programmes from such ice skating legends as Elvis Stojko, Alexei Yagudin, Tara Lipinski, Torvill and Dean (check out the liner notes for further skating legends).

The drama of the ice rink that has lived through the music of the ages --- Silva conveys the sense of excitement, adventure and even the urgency which ice skating champions bring to the rink in pursuit of the gold reward that awaits them.

Classic FM Magazine comments on Silva Screen's work with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra: "You have to hand it to the folks at Silva Screen - their pursuit of authenticity is tireless --- The result is a tour de force of inspired musicianship and technical ingenuity, Bravo!"

Hats off to Reynold da Silva (Executive Producer), David Stoner, Peter Compton & Jelena Jancic (Release Coordinators), James Fitzpatrick (Producer), Keith Ferreira (Concept), Damien Doherty (Art Director) and Rick Clark (Mastering the Recordings), less we forget our friends at Silva America who made this all possible.
