Format: Audio CD
Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827, German.

"Beethoven can write music, thank God, but he can do nothing else on earth". (Ludwig van Beethoven).

This Naxos CD is aimed at the beginner or occasional classical music listener and aims to provide a cross section of the entire works of Beethoven on a single CD of around one hour duration. It's difficult of course to achieve a satisfactory representation of a composer's lifetime achievements in such short time, but this CD does achieve its aim in that it offers an affordable introduction to Beethoven which may enable the listener to either pursue these works further, or simply to collect the entire Naxos `Best Of' range.

If the intention is to collect the series it will provide a good, although slightly abbreviated, library of classical music. Those requiring further listening are helped by the sleeve notes which give recommended further listening (all Naxos label CD's of course!).

It should be noted that the Naxos 2CD `Very Best Of' releases offer slightly better value than the single CD versions in this `Best Of' series.

That said, this is a good introduction to classical music for those on a careful budget.

The complete Naxos `Best Of' series (those indicated* also have `Very Best Of' releases):

Bach*, Bartok, Beethoven*, Berlioz, Bizet, Brahms, Chopin*, Debussy*, Dvorak*, Elgar*, Faure, Gershwin, Glazunov, Grieg*, Handel*, Haydn, Liszt, Lutoslawski, Mendelsshon, Mozart*, Paganini, Prokofiev, Puccini*, Rachmaninov*, Ravel*, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, Saint-Saens, Schubert, Schumann, Satie*, Shostakovich*, Sibelius*, Strauss (Johann) II*, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky*, Verdi*, Vivaldi*, Wagner, Weber.

I can not add much to what Mr. Zimmerman says in his review. As one who could be classed as an occasional listener to classical music,I find this "Best Of" CD is perfect. Most of the melodies, in superb digital stereo sound, will be familiar to music lovers, regardless of their "main interest" and the CD provides a great introduction, at a bargain price, to those wishing to delve deeper into classical music. Thoroughly recommended listening!

A great introduction for people who want to get to know Beethoven a bit better. I suspect people who know their stuff might find this a bit basic, but I don't know my stuff so it's a great place for me to start!
