Chill out, relax,
By A Customer
This review is from: Essential Bach (Audio CD)
I don't pretend to be an expert on classical music, in fact I know little more than the most famous composers' names and some of their most prominent works. However I have a general interest in classical music and this CD proved an excellent introduction to one of the greatest composers of all time. The record is a very good showcase for the work of Bach and therefore contains some great music. If you're anything like me you'll find music here which you know and love as well as some you know less well. It provides the best of both worlds, familiar work you know you're going to listen to again plus material which may be new to you that you can get to know and which may prompt further investigation of the great man's work. Listening to this CD is also the perfect way to relax. If you want a CD you can chill out to while doing something else, like revision, housework, whatever this really is ideal. This soothing, melodic collection will both stimulate your mind and help you unwind so kick back and prepare to get to know the work of a truly great composer!
