Andre Kostelanetz (Russian: Абрам Наумович Костелянец) was a Russian-born American popular orchestral music conductor and arranger who was one of the major exponents of popular orchestra music. This, aptly titled, album offers a group of unusual selections with the deft Kostelantetz touch. Yoichi Hiroaka is an excellent xylophone soloist in Hovhaness' "Fantasy On Japanese Woodprints", while Shinichi Yuize is expert on the koto in Miyagi's "Sea of the Spring". Another delight is the "Dance of the Persian Slaves" by Mussorgsky.
