Rob Kapilow Play Ball! (Casey at the Bat) (2000)

Reviews
In "Play Ball!," Family Musik has a hit - a home run, in fact... Kapilow's setting of Ernest L. Thayer's 1888 text mingles familiar ballpark melodies with a touch of Chopin's "Funeral March" and some splendid mock-Handelian flourishes. The music is clever...After the performance was over, there was an exuberant ovation. Parents and children mingled with musicians, singers, actors, and the composer. Nobody wanted to leave.
Richard Dyer, Boston Globe,14/05/2001
