5.0 out of 5 stars I like it!
Nice compilation and easy listening as it is one of the masters of the classical music - so what would be not to like!? :) Thumbs up!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Best of Mozart
This Naxos double CD is effectively a reworking of the original single CD release `The Best of Mozart', expanded to include more of the composer's music then attractively packaged with new artwork and a card slip-case cover showing an amusing caricature of the composer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Best of Mozart, 9 July 2007

This review is from: The Very Best of Mozart (Audio CD)
This Naxos double CD is effectively a reworking of the original single CD release `The Best of Mozart', expanded to include more of the composer's music then attractively packaged with new artwork and a card slip-case cover showing an amusing caricature of the composer.

As with any `Best Of' compilation much of the composer's work will inevitably be omitted - Mozart incidentally wrote more than 600 works so the 24 pieces on these CDs represent only a very small proportion of his lifetime works, although there are 2 and a half hours of music here giving a good cross-section of his compositional style.

Mozart was such a prolific composer and his music so widely played today that it is difficult to get a meaningful or in-depth representation of his compositions in such short time, and there are a great number of other budget-priced Mozart compilations available on 4, 5 or 6 CD sets which give a greater depth of music than on this 2CD set.

However, the sleeve notes are helpful for those wanting a little more than these highlights, for they provide recommended further listening (all Naxos label CD's of course!). But for those who do not wish to delve any deeper and are content with these types of collections there are a number of other Naxos `Very Best Of' releases featuring other composers, which together can form the basis of a respectable and reasonably comprehensive classical music CD library.

In summary, an informative and attractively presented mid priced CD.

(The complete Naxos `Very best Of' series features Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Debussy, Dvorak, Elgar, Grieg, Handel, Mozart, Puccini, Rachmaninov, Ravel, Satie, Shostakovich, Sibelius, Strauss (Johann) II, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Vivaldi).

2.0 out of 5 stars Better collections out there - but 3 hours well spent, 10 Jan. 2012

This review is from: The Very Best of Mozart (Audio CD)
Sound recording quality is poor. The choice of pieces very decent. So represent reasonable value - but not good value. For when you listen to Mozart WELL recorded - the pleasure received is 100 times better than what this delivers. Sorry. But there you go.

Obviously there is nothing negative I can say about the music. This is a good grouping of Mozart's work and is well performed.
