By Rudy Avila on November 5, 2005
For the novice, this album is a LOUD, bombastic, in your face way to get you hooked into opera. Opening the album is Richard Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra: Fanfare, which enjoyed enormous fame as the "Theme to 2001 A Space Odyssey". Behold The Sea Itself from "A Sea Symphony" is a spectacular musical account of the ocean in all its majesty. Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries is the most famous work of classical music with fortissimi passages and made famous through the film Apocalypse Now. Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain is an intense, gritty piece describing a harrowing, haunted night on the supposedly spooky mountain in Russia. Tchaikovsky's "Romeo and Juliet" Fantasy Overture includes a thunderous, intense section depicting the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Other music on here include the stunning, climatic finale to Puccini's opera Turandot with soprano Eva Marton as Turandot, Mussorgky's Great Gate at Kiev, O Fortuna the chilling hcorus from Orff's Carmina Burana, and Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, which is a staple of 4th of July concert programs. All in all, a great album of thunderous classical music that invades your stereo with its powerful sound.

The best part is that you want to leap tall buildings with a single bound while listening. Everyone should know these songs, and we all know a few snipits of them, but to know that the big cannons come at the end of the 1812 overture and there is some amazing power before hand too, well that is the beauty of listening to the whole thing. Every mother of boys should have this, or use it for a workout.
