Phillip Keveren is one of the more well-known arrangers for Disney music, the most impressive work being the Disney Recital Suites (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, the Lion King, the Little Mermaid). He took a completely different approach compared to the series by Makiko Hirohashi that I released earlier. Each piece in this album incorporates a popular classical tune. Be Our Guest, for instance, begins with the familiar Trepak from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker suite. These arrangements are quite different from the original, not necessary for the better. I personally enjoy Makiko Hirohashi’s arrangements more than this.
