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.
