Two Orchestras of Note
Speaking of Greg Sandow, I have him to thank for my discovery of the Wild Ginger Philharmonic [sound samples] an amateur orchestra that breathes much more life into classical music than the average professional symphony. They remind me of the semi-professional Boston Philharmonic who blew me away when I heard them live in Boston. The Boston Phil has released five CD's and their music director, Benjamin Zander, also records with the Philharmonia Orchestra and often includes an additional disc with his commentary. (Zander and his wife also write self-help.)
