5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect companion for Desert Island. 28 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I received this box set the day of release.This is a bird eye view of the box set.It shaped like a perfect cube that does not melt in large glass of whisky but it is smaller in size of the Living Stereo or Mercury living Presence and it perfect like a king size kebab to put in your
hand language to travel in far distant such to see the kangaroo in Australia or to se the vicious monkey in Uk Gibraltar or siting under the mango tree in Mauritius or under an umbrella in Bognor .(UK).If you like symphonies it is included from Martini,sorry, Sammartini to Phill,Phil,phil,Phillip Glass.The quality of sound from the recording that so far is excellent and no complain so far.I am are aware there are some other symphonies I would like to be included in the box set but even perfect diamond has impurities.I am pleased to purchase this box set.For those who is starting to listen classical music this is excellent collection as a base on the long road to explore other genre of music such as piano sonata.Highly recommend to those who do and do not like classical music.The view expressed in this review here is not the the view of the author as I wrote this under the influence of cooking sherry and I am hiding from my wife for spending so much money on box set in March and April 2004.Any remedy for headache when my wife hit with a saucepan which will happen soon. I say good bye quietly in case my wife heard heard me. Please no negative comments as I can feel a headache coming. Pass the reinforce helmet.The next larger box set that I ordered is the Scarlatti 555 sonata in 34 cd that is coming soon so is my wife with a larger sauce pan.I thank God that I am still alive today..Tomorrow I do not know. I wish Amazon do not sell so many box at a give away price.For October. I ordered a bigger box set the complete RCA James Galway.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect large ice cube for your large glass of bourbon 3 Jun 2014
By Mr. M. Beebeejaun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First the price it more expensive from Amazon USA than UK.It is shaped like a perfect cube that will not melt n a tumbler of pure bourbon.It is smaller and more compact than Living stereo or Mercury Living presence and an ideal package to put in your hand luggage to travel on your holiday to far distance places such to sit under a mango tree in Mauritius or to be attacked by vicious monkey ion UK Gibraltar or to blown in Windy City in USA or under an umbrella in Sunny London where it always rain on Sunday or to surfing with the Sharks in Australia.The box set is for those who do not like classical music and those who do.Music from martini shaken not stirred sorry I mean Sammartini to Phil,Phil,Phil,Phil,Philip Glass.Of course I would like others symphonies I like to be included but you can not eat your cake but still have it.Please no negative comments because I fell a headache coming .This review was written under the influence of cheap bourbon.The box set highly recommended to those who do not like classical box but prefer large Mac.
