Review:
Another fine entertaining and educational release in the "Stories in Music" series, created in the tradition of "Peter and the Wolf." With a performance by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, composer-conductor Stephen Simon has given the symphonic, narrative treatment to American poet Ernest Lawrence Thayer's classic poem about a baseball hero's fall from glory. Other tracks include information about the poem, about music composition, listening tips, a play-along track for aspiring violinists and the same music played as a concert band piece and a tango.
