4.0 out of 5 stars Annual review of the light classical scene
This has become an annual release, though this year they have dropped the "No 1" from the middle of the title. As well as being a compilation of light classical music it acts as a showcase, or sampler, of albums currently available in the genre from the Universal and Sony/BMG labels.
This is not to say that all the tracks, or the artists spotlighted, are brand new;...

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong music
The Classical Album 2005The CD had the wrong list of music on it,rendering the product almost useless. It is possible that other CDs of this series suffer from the same fault: buy them at your own risk if you must have them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Annual review of the light classical scene, 1 Dec 2004

This review is from: The Classical Album 2005 (Audio CD)
This has become an annual release, though this year they have dropped the "No 1" from the middle of the title. As well as being a compilation of light classical music it acts as a showcase, or sampler, of albums currently available in the genre from the Universal and Sony/BMG labels.
This is not to say that all the tracks, or the artists spotlighted, are brand new; there is an enormous age range of both, from the burgeoning talent of Katherine Jones and Hayley Westenra, through the established greatness of Bryn Terfel and Kiri te Kanawa, to the archived voices of Mario Lanza and Kathleen Ferrier.
Just about all imaginable styles are covered, too - opera, film scores, virtuoso instrumentals, variations on themes, sacred music, and pop. In a nod to those of us who occasionally like to hear the world's most beautiful music given a good seeing-to there are four blatant pop/modern rhythm pieces scattered about. This is fine but, for example, Vanessa-Mae's scratch and sniff version of Sabre Dance sandwiched between Andrea Bocelli and Placido Domingo does sound a little extreme.
Despite these little aberrations, I think it is well compiled, and provides two and a half hours of highly pleasurable listening. If it encourages more people to investigate the releases and back-catalogue of any of the artists featured they will not be disappointed; after all, there is much more to James Galway than "Annie's Song".

Fabulous collection of popular classics in 2 discs. If you like excerpts of well known classical pieces sung or performed by famous and talented people go buy this. There are 2 cd's with 20 "hits" in each disc. Relaxing music for those long journeys especially if the car radio is not entertaining. At a bargain price too.
