2008, Music

Witches Brew (1959, 1964, 2008) by the New Symphony Orchestra of London conducted by Alexander Gibson

This is one of those “Spooky classical” things that is generally entertaining but hardly anything more. It’s a good (but obvious) selection of famous “spooky” pieces, primarily from the Romantic era.

The Ex and I attended one of these types of things with the TSO one Halloween a few years ago and the selection wasn’t all that different (they just included some Bernard Hermann).

I am not really a fan of these types of collections, but at least this one has a clear, definite them to it, unlike so many others.

The CD version adds two pieces from later recording dates, FYI.
