Reviews

  • Hiss, hums and clicks

    By Hilsview
    Although the music itself is wonderful, when listened to closely on certain tracks there is a lot of background noise, including clicks, hums and what appears to be the sound of turning music sheets. Surely this should have been processed out before release?
  • No regrets

    Never bought classical before it was just never part of my upbringing, education or social mix. I plumped for this buy as I wanted to dip my toes. This was just the kind of introduction album I could have ever dreamed of finding. It's great.
  • Amazing!

    I'm not a fan of Classical USUALLY. But i gave this album a listen and realised that Classical isn't all boring toot for posh folk & old people. I am a big fan of Rock music, and i loved this! So much talent in one album, to fit all moods!
  • I'm lovin' it!

    As a classical novice I am a newly converted fan! I had to modify the playlist slightly - got rid of heavy and loud symphonies - and kept quiet, relaxing pieces - and I am really enjoying this while working or before going to sleep. I already have my favourite pieces - perhaps it's just a beginning of a lifelong romance?
  • Superb choice

    Found this by accident and extremely glad I did, what a brilliant album, perfect for fans of the classics and for those new to them. Relaxing and enchanting, simply wonderful!
  • Brilliant!

    All of my favourite pieces together in one album. A must for every music lover!
  • Astounding Value!

    I must say that this compilation really ticks most of the boxes. One or two pieces are not what you would expect, particularly Vivaldi's 'Le Quattro Staglione, but this is really nitpicking as most people will go through this selection and be totally happy with what they are hearing. So to summarise, great value, not all versions will be to everyone's liking but buy it and start listening!
  • Good collection

    All the great standards plus a few interesting suprises makes this a great collection. Good length - you can listen to it straight through if you're at your desk - and a decent price for 40 tracks.
