3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality but too short 9 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Lots of familiar excerpts of classical music are included on this 2CD collection, but it's the range of artists which add the value.

Sopranos Angela Gheorghiu, Kate Royal, Sarah Brightman, Maria Callas and mezzo-soprano Joyce Didonato provide the gentle touch while Pavarotti, Domingo and Villazon are among the tenors. Noteworthy instrumentalists include Nigel Kennedy, Julian Lloyd Webber and Alison Balsom.

The big names ensure a quality compilation, but 2 CDs rarely provide a satisfactory representation of classical music to suit all moods and occasions and there are many bigger sets, typically 4 or more discs, which challenge this collection.

For an alternative I'd recommend the 2003 Decca/Belart label 5CD set `100 Classical Hits'.

1.0 out of 5 stars A very disappointing collection. 20 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
An uninteresting collection with too many tracks from the past. Maria Callas and Pavorotti may have had albums released recently, but surely Classical 2010 should acrry more tracks by up and coming artists. In my oppinion, this is not a "must buy" collection, but sounds like that evergreen from school reports "could do better"!

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed up info and titles on discs 26 Mar 2013
By Arianna Hoffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music is very good, but it seems to be a problem with the discs writing. When I first ripped the discs, both came out with the info from disc #1, but when I listen to the songs I realized they had different songs only the info (song and singers) on both CD's was from CD #1. So I had to manually change all the info from disc #2 in order to rip both CD's. I believe that the other two customers that have two CD's #1 might have the same problem. I have exactly the same problem with the "Classical Album 2011" and "Classical Album 2005". The information on all of this CD's is mixed up.

As I stated in my review of Classical 2012, the music listed on the cover and the listings on the discs themselves don't match.
