All Music Guide - Heather Phares

    Wonderful selection

    I got this album as a gift and it is a favorite of mine. All the tracks are cut to resoanble lenghts, (like Bolero, origanilly 13 min cut to eight) and the selection is great. I am a skater myself and haveused any of the pices to create programs for my students. I like that modern pices like rapsody in blue and Thr american in Paris theme are include for a wider range. Recommendec for any classic music lover, figure skater or any one who likes some sloothing music.
