4.0 out of 5 stars Saved by the closing tracks 26 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
Bill Whelan is a gifted composer with a recognizable sound, trying to close the gap between classical music and folk with the Seville Suite with an aim, it seems to me, to be recognized as a serious composer.

Although all performances by orchestra and soloists are none other than great, the resulting recording is not entirely convincing to my ears. Lovely tunes and innovative use of folk instruments in combination with an orchestra cannot detract from the fact that the music is rather pompous (as is his style), which is quite annoying.

Usually I skip the Suite to get the tracks that follow - as these really make this cd worth your while. Both Timedance '92 and Dun Briste are moody, more sparse in execution and atmospheric. These tracks don't deserve a life of obscurity - neither Amazon nor Youtube offers samples.

2,5 stars for the Seville Suite and 5 stars for Timedance and Dun Briste make a balanced 4 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pre-Riverdance Whelan in symphonic mood 7 Nov 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bill Whelan is the prefect "crossover" artist. In this work he is essentially classical, using folk artists for colour. In "Riverdance" it is the stirring pulse of the music that makes it theatrical rather than concert-hall. If you buy it expecting it to sound like "Riverdance", you'll be disappointed. Consider it to be a string-based symphonic poem. Sean Davey does this kind of thing much better though. Note: "Riverdance" cannot be found in the classical section of Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A enchanting musical narrative. 30 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
From impassioned laments to rip-roaring foot-tapping reels, this album weaves a rich tapestry of music. The Irish/Celtic instruments blend beautifully with a full orchestra. Particular favourites are: Father Conry's Jig, The Coast of Galicia, and Caracena. Time Dance is an added gem that I hadn't heard in too many years. An excellent "must-have" album.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful cd for Celtic and classical music lovers 8 July 2011
By stevek - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Originally I found this many years ago by chance at a garage sale as a cassette. It quickly became one of my favorite albums. I still love it and recently bought the cd. It is melodic and quite moving, more like a symphony that blends together than a collection of random tunes.
