Format: Audio CD
The 42 tracks on this 4 disc set reflect the Classic FM radio listeners votes for their favourite piece of classical music of all time. Included also are some of the previous number ones from the chart's 17 year history.

Noteworthy are the appearances in the chart, and included on this set, of two scores from video games - the Main Theme from Final Fantasy (performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Andrew Skeet), and the uplifting theme from Elder Scrolls V- Skyrim by American composer Jeremy Soule. Both of these pieces are, for me, well worthy of their place in today's classical chart and help bring this type of orchestral music to a new generation of enthusiasts.

The old favourites from Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Elgar and more are deservedly here and Vaughan Williams wins this year's top spot, by listener's votes, with the perennial favourite `Lark Ascending'.

Orchestras, conducters and soloists are top class as always with Classic FM `Best Of' compilations, and include the London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Contertgebouw, Zubin Mehta, Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Georg Solti, The Sixteen, Yehudi Menuhin and many, many more.

There may be a little repetition from previous Classic FM collections, but this is a nice selection of classical music representing the traditional and the new contenders for future years.

For someone who isn't a true aficionado of classical music but like a broad selection - this album was an ideal 'taster' of a great range of classical music. 42 tracks for a very reasonable price. Good value for money.
