REVIEW August 25, 2006

This CD is a collection of symphonic works from as early as 1869 to as late as 1995. This CD is included here because the first track is the great and familiar "Symphonic Fantasia No. 1" by Akira Ifukube. It is done very well here by the Libera Wind Symphony. The rest of the symphonic and movie pieces on this disc are also great sounding and fun to listen to. If you are a fan of symphony music you will most likely enjoy this CD. I did.
