The title says it all!!! So many lovely classical pieces of various composers. There are three sections divided into 1)'Relaxing' (including my favourite-Pachelbel's 'Canon'), 2) 'Vocal' (including my favourites- Verdi's 'Chorus of Hebrew Slaves' and Puccini's 'Nessun dorma', and 3) 'Epic' (with more of my favourites including but not restricted to Holst's 'Jupiter', Beethoven's 'Fifth Symphony', Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons - Spring', and Elgar's 'Land of Hope and Glory'. It truly is the best one I have ever had!! I can do my ironing, my knitting, my sewing to it. Or I can just sit or even lie in bed and listen to it! A very worthwhile investment in classical music that will never go out of fashion! Thank you Amazon!!!

I've had this box set for about three weeks now and I am still listening to it daily. I like to dip into classical music now and again, but this compilation has opened my ears to a number of composers hitherto overlooked...
Each of the three CD covers a "theme". Relaxing, Vocal and Epic. Granted, there are plenty of obvious choices (Beethoven: 5th Symphony, Mozart: 40th Symphony, Puccini: Nessun Dorma and Handel: Hallelujah amongst others) but what I have enjoyed from this box set is an introduction to a number of other, lesser known pieces from composers not generally recognised (well to me anyway!).
Granted, one or two tracks are a bit "grainy" and appear to have been copied illegally... (Verdi: Dies Irae sounds particularly warped at volume) but they are perhaps two or three from a selection of almost 60 tracks.
However, if you treat this CD as an introduction to the best of classical music, or simply as a tool for broadening your knowledge of classical music, then this CD is more than up to the job. If you buy it, you won't be filing it away after a week, that's for sure!!!

I have listened to quite a few compilations such as this one but never really felt like exploring the world of classical music much further. This album opened my ears to the delights of classical music by including pieces that are recognisable by someone like me who knows little about classical music. For example, I did not know that the dramatic opening music in 2001 - A Space Odyssey was from Also Sprach Zarathustra by Strauss or that the background music in the British Airways TV commercial was the Flower Duet from the opera Lakme.
Since listening to this compilation, I have bought several classical music CDs and am enjoying them immensely. For example, I had actually seen Swan Lake and heard the music many years ago but never felt tempted to listen to it again. But after hearing the bit included in this compilation, I bought Tchaikovsky's Ballets (LSO, Andre Previn, EMI) and have listened to Swan Lake several times; each time the pleasure increases.
I also bought the Orchestral Works of Strauss (Staatskapelle Dresden, Rudolf Kempe, EMI) and The Complete Symphonies and Piano Concertos of Beethoven (Philharmonia Orchestra and New Philharmonia Orchestra, Daniel Barenboim and Otto Klemperer, EMI) and listened a few times to Also Sprach Zarathustra and Symphony 9 a few time, again each time with increasing pleasure.
So this compilation album opened many avenues of pleasure for me that I was not aware existed.

I bought this CD as I had heard that classical music was good for children and my son had just recently been born. I bought this one because I wanted to hear pieces that I would know and we could play along together with. Some of the CD's designed for babies I had never heard of the tunes.
When this turned up I was very pleased as after a first listen most of these tunes came flooding back to me. The way it is split between Epic, vocal and relaxing is just perfect as depending on my sons mood tells me which CD to play.
Reading the other reviews they are right, if you own a compilation of classical music then you will have a few of these. If like me you want to ease in gently into the genre then this is the perfect way to go about it.

A wonderful CD containing a lot of pieces that everyone will know, and including some new ones. An excellent CD to come home to and unwind with. It makes me want to explore the world of classical music more and has introduced me to composers who I would never have considered before. Definitely worth a listen to, especially very loud - only way to get the passion from the music!
