When this box set arrived, my immediate reaction was - "This is going to be fun!", and that certainly turned out to be the case. A very interesting box of CDs, with no obvious rhyme or reason for the choice of recordings included, other than their high standard of recording and performance.

Much of the content is new to me, with only a few (very fine) recordings of the usual Symphonies and Concertos we see in box sets, and it provides a superb showcase of classical music ranging from the baroque to Hollywood, including historical recordings, chamber pieces, song recitals by great singers and fascinating crossover recordings by jazz greats Chick Corea and Wynton Marsalis.

Possibly this collection was conceived as some sort of sampler, but the recordings included are the real deal, complete CDs rather than just "bleeding chunks", very enjoyable in their own right, and something which has usefully broadened my musical experience.

A great set of recordings from 1953 through to 2010 from labels eventually absorbed by Sony Music: RCA Living Stereo, RCA Victor, RCA Red Seal, Columbia etc. Some brilliant re-issues from the 50's & 60's (Pablo Casals, Glenn Gould, Artur Rubenstein etc.). There is some overlap with other boxed sets. The box is only 80% occupied and no booklet, so is something missing?
