At times the interpretation of "classical" is a little odd (e.g. Albatross by Fleetwood Mac; perhaps one day it will be generally seen as such) but overall a very enjoyable compilation with some old favourites and some new ventures to keep me company in the kitchen. The CDs are sort of themed, though I couldn't always say what the theme is; for instance the first CD has mostly vocal pieces (but includes "Albatross" so maybe I imagined the theme) and another seems to be film scores. I don't suppose it really matters anyway if what you are looking for is a decent selection of classical type music at a very reasonable price.

When I purchased this collection, entitled: "Classical - The Ultimate Collection." I wrongly assumed that I was to receive a selection of the best known and liked classical pieces. What I actually received was some rather easy listening background music, padded out with some pop music, and music from the movies. I had no idea that our heritage of classical music was so deplete as to have to fill up five C.D's with the like's of 'Abatross' and 'Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence'!

Bought this for my wife. Her opinion is that it's not too bad but most of it is single arias or movements, in other words excerpts. Its ClassicFM roots are clear. She wouldn't recommend this to a friend.

It's ok. There is lot of opera that I didn't want. I was hoping for just classical music. Out of the 4 cd's, there's probably 1 or two that are worth it.
