This is one of the bargains of the decade, provided you're in the mood for a sprawling variety of excerpts from the various classics, instead of complete works. The selections and artists are top drawer and Decca is justifiably proud of the fine sound. I find the individual songs, selections and orchestral movements stimulating in their variety. There are times I actually value being freed from the mental stamina and concentration that's required to hear through a complete piano concerto or symphony. Considering there are 5 CDs included, the price could hardly be bettered for a musical experience of this excellent quality.

This is a limited edition & supplies won't be replenished, so before it becomes a will o' the wisp. . . . . grab it!
