5.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a time ... February 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
.
a long, long time ago, I was wandering around one of those bricks and mortar bookstores. I usually pay little attention to the ambient muzak - but hark! Is that Seven Dwarf music I hear? I listened. I strode over to the music section. "What is this delightful music I hear? I must have it!" And so I did, and so should you!
In the accompanying lesson booklet, Shirley Fleming asks: "What accounts for that elusive thing called style? What makes one composer's music different from another's? ... The music `paraphrased' here covers three centuries and close to a dozen countries. It gives us a bird's-eye view of a very wide range of musical personalities, and - as you will hear - each has his own distinctive voice."
The composer/arranger/conductor of this wonderful CD, Donald Fraser, says: "This collection brings together two magical worlds: the world of Disney and the world of classical music. The album fulfills a wish I've held for some 15 years - to help introduce today's audiences to classical music via some of the most familiar and beloved melodies in movie history."
Educational factor aside, this CD is just plain fun! The arrangements are rich and lush. My favorite is Heigh-Ho a la Mozart. Picture the Seven Dwarfs marching off to their daily toil in the mines as you listen to this on your morning commute! The Second Star to the Right chorale reminds me of the St. Olaf Choir when they're going fine! There's a Joplin-esque "Under the Sea" and a stirring "Can you Feel the Love Tonight" a la Tchaikovsky ( no 1812 canons, but some buildups come close!- Elton never did it this way!) and a spritely "Winnie the Pooh."
What an excellent 100th birthday celebration for Walt Disney!

4.0 out of 5 stars Varied, eclectic, intriguing and occasionally fascinating September 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The game of translating a piece of music from one style to another is an old one, and can have many different results. It can seem like just a new arrangement of an old song, or an interesting combination, or its own new piece entirely. This eclectic collection shows several of the possibilities.
[Warning: I have no musical training, and these are personal impressions, not educated analysis. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.]
The Mozart version of "Heigh Ho" is a straightforward rendering of Disney's tune in Mozart's style. It's fun, but not a tour de force. The Johann Strauss "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?" is similarly interesting, but doesn't really rise above the level of a re-arrangement of a familiar thirties movie tune.
By contrast, the Rachmaninoff version of "Beauty and the Beast" adds to the emotional effect. The love song plays well in this form. Similarly, the Tchaikovsky approach greatly improves "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" Yes, now I can feel it, which I never quite did in the Elton John original version. The impression of Handel's Water Music (I think) adds to the effect of "Little April Shower".
A very few pieces became new and excellent works on their own. "I Wanna Be Like You" translated very well from its Jazz origin to Villa-Lobos classical guitar, and "Under the Sea" makes a very good Joplin rag. These translations work so well that they are almost new songs, rather than variations, just as "West Side Story" became its own story, not just "Romeo and Juliet in New York".
Some of the combinations are obvious and straightforward.

5.0 out of 5 stars I just *LOVE* it!! September 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I found this CD while browsing through our public library's music selection. It looked interesting, so I go it. I have listened to that CD every single day since I got it--I listened to "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" four consecutive times on one occasion. The only thing I'd like better than listening to this music would be playing it. I think it would be a great way to introduce someone--not just a child, either--to classical music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great at a wedding! April 5, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This music is relaxing and well recognized, played in a different style than you would normally expect! We played several selections during the receiving line at my daughter's wedding reception (she and her husband are "Disney nuts" and many people asked and commented about it. Even the DJ was impressed! It set a wonderful mood for the rest of the party. Each selection is a well-known tune, yet performed in an unexpected way. Young and old enjoy it very much. I now purchase it for gift giving occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uncle Walt would be quite honored! December 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
For many a baby boomer, Walt Disney meant animation. But, besides that, music played an important part in the telling of the story. So interested in music was the animator that he fashioned one of his greatest triumphs ("Fantasia") on the works of the great masters.

Well, Donald Frasier and a bevy of musicians have compiled a wonderful collection of interpretations of familiar Disney tunes, many from Walt's time, along with a few latter day compositions.

Every selection is a winner, destined to make the listener reflect and recall the films from which they came. And if one is familiar with the composer whose musical style is "copied" here, the album is a treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars most entertaining CD for Disney fans!
As the cover says, great classical composers. I frequently listen to this, because it's so relaxing, and sometimes I forget it's Disney...but I love when I recognize the song!
