.
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!

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.

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.

This is an oldie but goody. I was over at my sister's house and heard this one and immediately wanted to know where she got it. I had heard this in high-school and loved it, but never knew an MP3 version existed. Got it and am enjoying the fun twists on Disney classics. Probably Not for someone who does not like the original Disney tunes (Beauty and the Beast and earlier) but even my kids enjoy it and they are far to young to remember most of these songs.

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.

Being a classical music connoisseur, I often listen to my local public classical radio station to hear the works of the great composers of old and of today. One day the station played "Colors of the Wind" and announced it was from this CD. I fell in love with it. I am a huge Disney fan who has over 350 Disney songs on my iPod. Pretty much the only music I listen to is either classical or Disney. And having them combined makes this CD euphoria for the ears.

Each song is in the style of a different classical composer, and usually in the style of one of their more specific songs. One with a trained ear will hear chords and melodies in almost perfect similitude of the original.

I can listen to this CD over and over and never get bored. How could you be bored when you're hearing all of your favorite old Disney songs in a new exciting way?
