Grumbling about the book by the real-life characters has grown with the opening of the movie. Serpico is said to feel distant from the film.

Let the cold winter winds When Carman Dragon and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra perform Chopin's Nocturne in E flat and many of the other melodies on this suddenly it's summer again. Suddenly it's moon-lit skies and warm breezes. The old cliche time and the living is comes to mind. K-2SV music enthusiasts should have this recording. Certainly no music is easier to listen to than these light Chopin melodies. Chopin has been called the musical poet of his time. And this recording has many of his most famous poems. It is a refreshing exhilarating even. Ever the Chopin expresses his love of nature and freedom of spirit in his compositions as surely as did the young English romantic poets of his Keats who expressed theirs in verse. No orchestra can do Chopin of without a pianist of exceptional technical skills. Most of Chopin's work was written for and Emanual Bay must be given great credit for soar- ing with these melodies. There are 10 works per- formed here.
