Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

This two-CD set, released to coincide with the 2001 Classical Brit Awards, features some of the year's biggest-selling classical artists: Bond, Charlotte Church, Vanessa Mae, Andrea Bocelli and Russell Watson to name but five. There is plenty of room for much else besides and the extracts from a huge variety of Brits nominees' albums make for a varied and generally pleasant listen. Bryn Terfel's breathtaking version of "Myfanwy" is matched by Angela Gheorghiu singing "Pace, Pace Mio Dio!" from La forza del destino; Kennedy's version of Bach's Violin Concerto in E; the marvellous Grimethorpe Colliery Band's "Nimrod"; Renée Fleming singing "Marie Theres" from Der Rosenkavalier; Plácido Domingo with "Heil dir, Sonne! Heil dir, Licht!" from Siegfried and Simon Rattle's Mahler 10 with the Berlin Phil are highlights in this collection. Not quite sure why we've got the Three Tenors singing "Amazing Grace" (or should we say " Amyzing Gryce") or the Mediaeval Babes at all. There may be better collections around but this is an interesting record of current trends. --Antonia Couling

5.0 out of 5 stars Classical Masterpieces 7 Mar 2010
By Angela
My husband bought this album in 2001 which was only the second year for the Classical Brits which tries to tread the fine line between the pop-crossover world of artists like Bond and Vanessa-Mae and what is seen as the more purist world of the classical mainstream such as Sir Simon Rattle.
Tenor Russell Watson won two awards, the Album Of The Year and the Best Selling Debut Album awards. Conductor Simon Rattle won three awards - one for Outstanding Contribution, and two for an album of Mahler's 10th Symphony which he recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Other winners included Nigel Kennedy who was named Male Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year was Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu.
As well as masterful contributions by well known Operastars such as Placido Domingo, Bryn Terfel and Renee Fleming, the album includes samplers from Albums by classical-light artists previously unknown to me such as Filipa Giordano, who sings a gorgeous Popstar 'Ave Maria' by Charles Gounoud, and William Orbit with an electronic version of Xerxes by Handel. Listening to 'Wachet Auf'-Sleepers Awake - whilst driving at dawn on a sunny winters day was the most amazing experience. I have always loved 'Bachianas Brasilieras' and the version by Lesley Garrett is very beautiful. There are film soundtrack hits such as YoYo Ma's 'Eternal Vow' from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and Hans Zimmer's 'The Might of Rome' from Gladiator. This was my first hearing of Andre Rieu with the 'Carmen Overture' from his 'Celebration' Album. Altogether a wonderful compilation double CD of music by some of the world's greatest classical artists and excellent value.

If you like this compilation you might also like the CD 'Baroque Adagios' from the DECCA 'Adagio' series.

I wish we still got this tv programme in Australia, I used
to love it. Emma Shaplins Leonora I play over and over
again. Rodrigo's Planets and Band of Brothers are classics.

I like the first CD better than the second. I liked the fact that I'v recognized tunes I really liked but would not have been able to know how to find them other than by listening to them
