5.0 out of 5 stars The soul of classical music, 28 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wonderful portrayal of the character of Beethoven, the internal forces driving him, and his struggle for acceptance among his aristocratic audience, who also happen to pay his bills. The music is phenomenal also, and the film helps the listener to understand what is going on.

This review is from: 100 Classical Hits (Audio CD)
If you are not sure what you like, this set of classical pieces will give you a very good idea. None are longer than about five minutes.

3.0 out of 5 stars it's okay, 8 Jan. 2013

some of the tunes I like, but it has only had one playing so far. I think I prefer to stick with Chopin.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb, 8 Jan. 2013

I had forgotten how brilliant this music is. I had an EP (remeber those?) of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik about 50 years ago, and loved it then. Now, having a better stereo, and with this classy recording, it just sounds even better.

The Italian is at a very nice level to read. The potted histories of the personalities are interesting in themselves and worth knowing.

4.0 out of 5 stars not his best, but well worth reading, 8 Jan. 2013

cleverly written, but the main character was such a naive girl, I found her a bit irritating. Not enough "meat" in the MI5 stuff, either.

5.0 out of 5 stars great resource for great tunes, 17 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The albums "Tales of the Hudson" and "Two Blocks from the edge" are two of the iconic statements of contemporary jazz. This book contains the transcription of many of the sax solos which are a valuable resource for anyone studying modes tenor playing. Not to forget the many choruses of "Impressions" from a McCoy Tyner album. Unmissable.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down..., 12 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As an ardent Crystal Palace fan, I couldn't put this book down. I always enjoyed listening to what Simon Jordan had to say. I know I would never have been sufficiently brave to take the business risks that he took. I wouldn't have believed what he said about some of the relationships, but when you reflect on what happened, it all made sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars the way it was, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sons and Lovers (Kindle Edition)
The language in the book was beautiful, with exquisite descriptions. It was a very interesting look at life a century ago in working class England. Although the pace was a bit slow, this added to one's appreciation.
