Read by Marin Alsop, Unabridged, 2CDs
Marin Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony and the world’s leading female conductor, presents the lives and works of six more composers in her award-winning series of classical music audiobooks published by Naxos AudioBooks. Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Rachmaninov and John Williams are the figures she presents here with their music in the forefront.
How does Williams sit in the company of Haydn and Chopin?
Marin Alsop says ‘I have conducted John Williams in concert and I feel that in the contemporary context, and especially in the music he has written for films, he deserves to be upfront with the great classic composers.’
Excerpts from the big films including E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark and Star Wars are included in this unique concept album.
