Baroque is a unique era in Classical Music with so many composers and their works, some of which have become everyday favourites and familiar, others rare discoveries.
In this 6 disc box set, EMI have released 100 some of the most familiar works and movements from this era. There is a good mix of different genres,ranging from orchestral works, chamber music, keyboard and chorales. The album is arranged according to nationality with composers from German,Italian,Spanish,French and English. The recordings are excellent taken from the EMI archives with performances by top musicians, too many to name here. I think it was great of EMI to release this box set which has excellent top rated performances, with clear sound at affordable prices. What I liked best about it was the rare discovery of composers and pieces I had not come across before. I think this is a great buy and one that will please many .
