Program Notes

"But no one will want to sing or play a melody that begins with an octave leap!" said an early critic. That melody that no one would sing or play is now probably the best known in the world. From The Wizard of Oz comes the song that has charmed millions. Warren Barker treats this scoring with care in a lush setting perfect for any concert occasion.
