Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Capriccio Italien and 1812 are delivered with swaggering virtuosity and panache; cannon salvoes, bells and processional brass approach overkill, but with Lenny before a live audience anything could happen, and often did!

 You can feel it! July 13, 2012 By J. Keener (Canonsburg, PA) See All My Reviews "All of the selections are well above average. I bought this for the 1812 and cound't be more pleased. Being a live recording, you can feel the enthusiasm. As long as you have a good sound system, the entire piece may be the best I've enjoyed. As an ex-artillery man, the use of the cannon was enough to make what's left of my hair stand on end. " Report Abuse
