GREAT SLABS OF HEAVY STUFF!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heavy Classix (Audio CD)
Excellent compilation geared to the curious Rock fan looking for Classical of a more fistbanging nature!
The audio quality & performances are all excellent (no dusty mono recordings here!!)and what a fantastic tracklist. Tchaikovsky, Holst, Wagner, Prokofiev, Mussorgsky, Borodin etc....
Valkyrie/The Ride of the Valkyries (Apocalypse Now!)
Symphonie Fantastique/4. March to the Scaffold (Conclusion)
Pictures at an Exhibition/The Hut on Fowls' Legs - VERY DRAMATIC!
Pictures at an Exhibition/The Great Gate at Kiev
Espana - NEVER HEARD OF THIS BUT IT'S A LIVEWIRE!!
Prince Igor/Polovtsian Dance - A REAL STOMPER...
Planets/Mars, The Bringer of War (Conclusion) - THE HEAVIEST THING EVER WRITTEN?!
Romeo and Juliet/Montagues and Capulets - VERY EPIC AND STIRRING...
Lohengrin/Prelude to Act 3
Firebird/Infernal Dance - ABSOLUTELEY FRANTIC!
I'd recommend this and Massive Classics from Amazon UK as an (even better)
Definiteley one for fans of Nightwish, Therion & Metallica's S&M, alongside the Classical crowd.
