Format: Audio CD
There are some records that are so beautifull that you can hear them again and again. The virtuosity of Kremer and the orchestra are beyond doubt.Congratulations for the sixh anniversary

Slow and timid to start like the sun beginning to brighten a long summer day, do not take this CD frivolously. The music captured here melts across the speakers. Never have I been so mystified, lost and utterly annoyed all at once by all the different interpretations of Happy Birthday music. In some ways the art here is brilliant in supplying intriguing Mozartesque, Beethoveny and Brahmsesque renderings of such a banal tune. On the other hand, I can also imagine the equivalent of a musician's Adobe Photoshop that at a press of a button reconfigures the tune to fit the style: tango, ragtime, adagio, presto!
Thankfully, the second half of this collection entertains with superbly done variations of 'God Save the King' and 'Moonlight' tunes.
Make jest of this compilation if you like. However, it is fundamentally sound and top notch. I highly recommend this CD for classical music DJs that can mix in a quirky tune with the conservative - your listeners may consciously never notice. In addition, it is also perfect for those with a sense of humor as well as serious aficionados that have a 100+CD changer and can slip this one in for levity.

Jest with Zest Nov. 25 2005
By Savoury Freak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you enjoy parodies, this will be the perfect album for you. The jokes played on the various composers are amusing and refreshing, especially for music students who bore their brains out analysing these composers. Take a fresh view and enjoy! Even though they may seem meaningless initially, they grow onto you soon enough; and you will start asking - why not?

A perfect birthday gift Jan. 26 2006
By Lai Chun Pin Patrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought it out of my own devotion to Gidon Kremer and another one for a food friend's birthday. Kremer never let me down. This is another outstanding CD and a perfect birthday gift, even for non-classical lovers. However, to be very honest, I am not totally satisfied with all the tracks but still it's highly recommended. I would say it is an almost-must-have for your CD shelf. The variation of the traditional 'Happy Birthday' is fantastic if not too commercial.

Happy Birthday by Gidon Kremer Jan. 9 2007
By D. Brittin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a nice "classic" touch for any birthday celebration--great musical treatment of a most familiar tune!
Too Short April 1 2014
By Tony M. - Published on Amazon.com
I heard this fascinating piece of music on XM radio and I wanted it. However, I'm disappointed that this only runs three minutes and twenty-eight seconds. The version on the radio ran much longer. I can only assume the longer version is not available in MP3. Too bad.
