Alex Masi - In the name of Beethoven

Reviewer :
Kaj Roth Format: Album
Release date: 2006-05-11 Year: 2006
Label: Lion Music
Genre: Classic Rock
Producer: Alex Masi
Artist discography


The third and final instalment of Alex?s series of classical inspired releases music that started off with the very successful "In the Name of Bach" and followed last year by "In the Name of Mozart".
Alex Masi performs some of Beethoven?s most classic work on classical guitar and electric guitar,it?s all very well performed and I doubt that Yngwie Malmsteen could?ve played these pieces without messing them up with lightspeed scales on his guitarneck and as enjoyable as Masi does.
However I feel the 9 minute versions of "Sonata no1" and "Romance for violin no.5" are just a bit too long and the whole idea of making these classical tributes maybe only is for his own sake.....coz how many out there can say with the hand on their heart that they have Masi?s salute to Beethoven streaming in their homes all day long?!

Tracklisting 1. Symphony No. 5 (First Movement)
2. Sonata No. 21 (Waldstein Sonata)
3. Romance For Violin No. 2
4. Sonata No. 14: Adagio Sostenuto
5. Sonata No. 14: Allegretto
6. Sonata No. 14: Rondo Agitato
