From the CD Rack–The Music of the Spheres

Photo by on

Mannheim Steamroller’s CD The Music of the Spheres is a space-themed project the group did in association with the Space Foundation and NASA. The CD starts off with a rousing “Escape From The Atmosphere” consisting of a space shuttle launch and a shuttle landing. Between the narration from commentators at the Kennedy Space Center and the Johnson Space Center and the music from Mannheim Steamroller, I felt as though I was riding right along!

The CD includes music from Gustav Holst’s classic “The Planets”, the theme songs from “The Outer Limits”, and “Star Trek” tv series, Richard Strauss’ “Sprach Zarathustra Op. 30 Fanfare”, and original songs from Mannheim Steamroller, such as “The 7 Stars of the Big Dipper”, so the music complements the space shuttle coverage.

With the music and the commentators’ narration, this is a good CD to listen to when you want to escape from the world for awhile!
