Drew has collaborated with the London Symphony Orchestra and legendary arranger Bob Krogstad (arranger for Natalie Cole, Mel Torme, Michael Crawford, Disney, etc.) in this collection of Cinema Classics. The album includes many favorites, including the exquisite Cinema Paradiso by film composer Andrea Morricone who writes; "Drew Tretick and the London Symphony Orchestra perform with such beauty and sensitivity."
A SUMMER SERENADE
Recorded with the Slovak National Symphony, Drew brings his sound and style to Broadway, film, popular, opera, and classics arranged for violin and orchestra. The opening track, Phantom of the Opera includes "Music of the Night," "Phantom" and "All I Ask of You." Every track is a favorite heard live at his concerts. His virtuosity is on display in Flight of the Bumblebee and Vivaldi's Summer. The album ends gently with the Ave Maria and Meditation from Thais. Enjoy the musical variety and warmth of Drew's playing in A Summer Serenade!
Featuring Somewhere in Time, Dances With Wolves and Schindler's List, this is an album of favorites and beautiful Drew Tretick originals. The album showcases Mr. Tretick's abilities not only as violinist, but as orchestra composer, arranger and his skills on the various instruments he uses in this recording. All arrangements, violin, piano, instrumentation and performances by Drew Tretick.
Featuring Time To Say Goodbye as heard in the Olympics and seen on PBS, this CD includes a bonus PBS video and is an interactive CD-ROM for PC/MAC. Drew's performance of Time to Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro) has moved audiences, and this CD also includes the live PBS broadcast of his performance. Improvisations on classic themes and originals follow the opening track. With the exception of the opening track, the album is performed completely live from the violin with nothing prerecorded using interactive technology he developed.
As seen and heard on ESPN (Star-Spangled Banner) and quite unlike his other albums, Drew is featured in this live concert setting presenting electronic violin technology to make his violin sound like virtually anything. The point was to inspire students to think of the different possibilities that lie ahead for them on a string instrument. Absolutely everything you hear comes from the violin. It is amazing to listen and imagine Drew playing the violin to create all of this. An energetic, boldly different album that has been inspirational to students around the world. Audience favorites include Star-Sangled Banner, Electric Folklore, and Montana Meadow.
