Notes & Reviews:

Not appealing to fans of the Watusi or jitterbug, this hour-long collection features classical music that is distinguished yet sprightly at times. The Tchaikovsky segment is particularly enjoyable. With one composition by Alexander Borodin, the album slightly emphasizes the sweeping Russian style of romanticism. The underrated Carl Maria Von Weber contributes the title track. ~ Mark Allan
