This is one of the best compilations I have found regarding Classical Music. It brings many Orchestra's from around the World, right into your living room. With well-known Orchestra's as Royal Philharmonic, London Symphony and our Eastern Orchestra's such as Slovak Philharmonic, Paris Conservatoire etc. The only downside, is that "Academy of St. Martin-In-The-Fields" are not on this compilation, as they are my favorite.

100 Hits over 5 CD's and each piece is well known and beautfully composed and conducted.

The negatives:
1: Whilst the majority of this compilation is DDD (Digital format). There are a few tracks that are AAD (Analogue, Analogue, Digital). For those who do not know. That means "A - Studio Recorded on Tape", "A - Mastered on Tape", then "D - Remastered onto Digital". In a nutshell; the old "tape hiss" syndrome.

2: In my own opinion, they could have left out CD 3. As it contains "voice" Classics. I don't mind some Tenors or Baritones. But Suprano's is a little too much for my ears when I just want to relax and the lights down low. Thank manufactures for Toughened Glass lol.

For those who love Classical music at it's best. Do not put this in your usual CD Player (2 speakers) 2:1 sound systems. Instead, place the cd in your DVD player with proper (5 speaker) 5:1 Surround-Sound Theatre System and get a real Concert Hall effect. Granted, the CDs are only a 2:1 recording but you'll be amazed what you'll hear from each speaker - Tape Hiss included : )

Enjoy and thanks for reading.

This is a decent enough compilation, with each of the 5 x CD's at 70 minutes plus - great value for anyone dipping their toes.
A lot of the well known Classics are here, together with a full disc of OST material ie Star Wars, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, the (brilliant) Piano etc. I must stress that the vast majority, if not all of the Movie soundtrack material is NOT the original recordings, but it is still decently performed, and mercifully free of the use of synthesisers to create the orchestral sounds. It's all bonefide orchestras & conductors.
There are better compilations out there but at this price it's great value!
Great version of Ride Of The Valkyries on here as well...

The selection of music in the CD is brilliant, but the recordings for some music are really poor.

As noted in other reviews, some of the recordings here won't receive rave revies in the Times, but none of them are bad either. This is a well put together compilation covering a wide range of music, and I've really enjoyed listening to it. I've barley touched the film themes - it's the other discs that hold the attention. Unless you have a classical collection of top-notch recordings covering 50-odd composers, this seems a good buy to me.

My children bought me this for Mothers day. It is fantastic, if you just need a little chill out fix. Some of the tracks sound a little tinny, but, the trumpet voluntary is one of the best I've heard. Ideal for playing in the back ground. Any purist among you would doubt at the classification of some of the tracks as classical. But i think it is excellent easy listening.
