Arthur Fiedler made listening to classical music fun. Try a listen to 'Pomp and Circumstance', one of my favourite pieces of classical music. 'William Tell Oveture' shines as does most of the material on this album. Well recorded for it's day. Fiedler is missed.

I bought this CD a little over a year ago and it is still among my favorites. "Polvetsian Dances" is excellent no matter what your interests. The full version of "Pomp and Circumstance" as well as "The William Tell Overature" are wonderful; The "Procession of the Nobles" is victorious and galliant; the lyrical complexity of "Farandole" is haunting. This is a brilliant compilation of musical excellence.

I had the opportunity of playing in an orchestra under Maestro Fiedler. He was a tough, no nonsense conductor who expected crisp, lyrical, and expressive. His musical interpretations of everything from Sabre Dance to Syncopated Clock; from Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 to his love for the Beatles, sets him as the ruler supreme in pop music. I only hope RCA will continue to reissue his LPs so a new generation knows the man and his music. Bravo!

This is a great collection of the music from the Boston Pops under the direction of Conductor Arthur Fiedler. Thoroughly enjoyable mix of music.

A treat to hear beautiful music without having to leave the house and go to a concert hall. Personally, there is nothing like Fiedler's arrangements to take away the stresses of the day and into a civilized world.
