    Product Description

    Product Description

    Back in the good old days, CDs had pretty decent sound quality, superior in many respects to the MP3s which are becoming ever more ubiquitous. And, in those days, some really superior classical music albums were issued. Many of them are still readily obtainable today, not only in CD format, but also in the downloadable version. One day, these recordings may be issued in downloadable HD audio.

    Whatever the format, the classical CDs described here are the best of the best, and this book is a perfect introduction for those who are new to classical music and want to sample the best recordings in the genre.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A nice assortment of CDs to seek out to build your classical music library 19 Feb 2012

    Thank you Barry. I have only been into classical music for a few years and I've been having fun building my collection and seeking inexpensive recordings. Your guide is perfect for finding some of these gems. I've already purchased a used copy of your favorite CD (excellent!) and I've got several others on my list. I will be buying some compositions that I've never even heard of because my library doesn't have them, and I don't think I've heard them on the radio. Also I commend you for not following the pretentious and intimidating cataloging language that the strict academic types have been known to use. You tell us the composer, common name of the work, conductor, orchestra, and label. Perfect!

    However I wish you would update some of the text. You updated the book in 2010 to add promos for some of your other books but it doesn't appear that you touched the text. There are a couple of places where you referred to "best of this century" where it needs to be "best of the last century" or "best of the 20th century." There are a few Kindle formatting problems. Also, maybe you have found some more personal favorites in recent years to add to your list?
