Reviews - What do customers think about Heidi (Junior Classics)?
Incredible. Feb 16, 2004
Teresa Gallagher's perfomance is worth listening. From 8-year-old girl to senior men and women, or even a kitten, she plays by herself with complete control - flawlessly composed. I strongly recommend to try her art of voice.
Background music is discreet and proper, which reminds me of Johann Strauss.
I'm sorry it's abridged, perhaps into 1/3 or 1/4 of original. But despite this minor complaint, this is a masterpiece.
