Notes & Reviews:

Carnival of the Animals is the latest release from the Cincinnati Pops and features the celebrated title track by Camille Saint-Saens with a delightful new orchestration by Cincinnati Pops Conductor John Morris Russell that showcases the extraordinary artistry of the acclaimed ensemble. The 93rd Cincinnati Pops album also features the world premiere recording of Waiting for Wings, a musical adaptation of Lois Ehlert’s immensely popular children’s book composed by Jason Robert Brown and Georgia Stitt. One music critic described this work as “highly picturesque” and “inventive.”

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Mr Russell is responsible for the lively, clever orchestration. Some of the movements are preceded by recorded animal sounds. The colorful touches from the Saint- Saens original score are still here, and - dammit! - it's a rollicking good time. The playing is lively and alert.
