The recordings on this CD span several years in Kunzel's work with the Cincinnati Pops. The recording quality is first rate. The CD opens with a cut called "The Sounds of the West" complete with western sound effects. The mooing cows and whinnying horses were so real that our dog made a bee-line to the speakers on my system. The selection is varied enough to provide something of interest to about any listener.

A great test for a stereos, including subwoofers. Chiller, Also Sprach Zarathustra, Grand Canyon Suite, and Jurassic Lunch will put any sub to the test. Telarc's digitial recordings are top-notch!

This is not a bad CD but I thought the selections could have been better. I think you are better off buying the source CDs. Erich Kunzel's output is substantial. Most of Kunzel's CDs follow a particular theme or follow a genre when it comes to film scores. I think you are better off to go with the type of music that you generally like instead of this potpourri. You usually can't go wrong with any of Erich Kunzel's recordings.

Growing up in Cincinnati, I have always been aware of the fine arts tradition there. Erich Kunzel (may he rest in peace) was the greatest conductor of the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra; his loss made the world a colder, darker place. This CD is a fine example of the Pops at work. The movie and television themes are rendered flawlessly with just the right amount of added flair to enhance them without detracting from their authenticity. For instance, the "Cybergenesis" intro to the theme from Terminator is the finest I have ever heard and flows so smoothly into the theme song that you would think it was the original score and everything you have heard before was simply a shortened version of this. The sound quality of this CD is absolutely superb, so much so that one could close their eyes and feel like they are sitting front row center before the Pops Orchestra itself. This CD is a complete STEAL at this price. A word of caution when playing it for the first time: do not adjust the volume significantly until about halfway through a song. The sound quality is so crystal clear and so powerful that it will startle the neighbors if the volume is up too high!

I love pops orchestra's so when I saw this CD available at a decent price I had to get it. Now first of all you have to know that this CD has music almost all of you would know. It is not high classical music. What really got me is the sounds they produce in most of the music. True pure sounds that were produced so real sounding. A great recording that you WILL love.

I have a few cd's now of the Cincinnati pops and bought this to add to my collection. However I absolutely love some of the tracks on this one especially Nissun Dorma.

It has a good crystal clear sound for a great classical music for all different kinds of instruments that will display how good a stereo system you have.
