It includes the techno style and the traditional style.

I am a freaking fan or freaky fan of Steamroller... they can take the regular score of a piece of music and make it even more special with Chip Davis's arrangements.

Saw them in concert and love to have the album on hand to relive the experience at any time I want.

Format: Audio CD
Opening for this one of a kind album - "To Russia With Love", is the American melody juxtaposed to a Russian melody, only the leader of Mannheim Steamroller - Chip Davis could have pulled this off. This "festival like" atmosphere is the multi-national spirit sharing music from the past to present.
Of course there are highlights - "THE GOODWILL GAMES" blends well-known themes with new counterpoints..."DANCING FLAMES" the upbeat tempo of Davis is in full swing - invigorating and simply intoxicating with melody penetrating the inner-rhythm strands of your being, very effective..."THE GOOSE FROM SMOLENSK" has festival written all over it, happy people dancing in the square with friends and relatives..."FUGUE" the old-masters would be proud, Davis has captured the mood with a touch of 20th Century thrown in.
The booklet with liner-notes shares the background on places, recordings and the seasons...along with some great pictures showing where this was done and by whom, not to mention the Cyrillic version which reads the opposite direction, how unique.
Once again Chip Davis and the Mannheim Steamroller gang have come up with an extraordinary album...exposing their fans to music from another world - the wonderful culture of the Russian people through music...Chip Davis style!
Total Time: 46:10 on 14 Tracks...American Gramaphone 3094...(1994)

I have mixed feelings about this album. In some ways, it seems like a bit of a rip-off for Mannheim Steamroller fans since it only offers one new Steamroller track (The Goodwill Games Theme), and it's not a particularly good piece of music anyway. Technically, there is another new piece, The Fanfare, but being that it's only about a minute long and is quite unremarkable, we'll just ignore that one. To make matters worse, Chip Davis took "Dancing Flames" from Fresh Aire 4 and rearranged it, making it sound thin and lifeless, which is really a shame since Dancing Flames had long been one of my favorite Steamroller pieces.
On the plus side, there are some really good, older, Steamroller tracks here, such as "Chakra 3" and "Fugue," and some of the Russian classical music is quite good.
If you're a Steamroller fan, skip it. If you're a fan of Russian Classical music, you might enjoy it, but then you might be irritated by the inclusion of the Steamroller tracks (which, in juxtaposition to the grandiose classical pieces, seem pretty hokey.) Seems like this is a no-win situation.

This is a highly recomended album. A great mix of Russia's classical and folk music along with some of Chip Davis's own New Age classics includung a remake of "Danceing Flames" from the Fresh Aire 4 album. Keep it up Chip!!!

A real change from the normal arrangements by one of my favoite groups. I would put it on the end of the line of this, one of my favorite groups.

Excellent replacement for myself and a friend, the last one was left in the car when it was traded in and I really missed it. The friend loves it too.
