Notes & Reviews:

Leave it to the Bulgarians, once again, to throw in a little surprise along with the familiar, mostly lighter classics, in this series. Jose Juventino Policarpo Rosas Cadenas was a Mexican composer who also played violin and led a band. "Over the Waves" is his best-known work, and was often attributed to the Strauss family. Here it makes a very interesting bridge between the Grieg and Sibelius works!
