If you're looking for purely classical music, this is not for you. There is certainly a distinction between mucial theatre and classical music that is not made on this cd, and even if you like musical theatre (which I very much do) I want to hear it sung by musical theatre voices, not the stylings of pop musicians or classical voices singing musical theatre - it does'nt do it for me. This CD does have some excellent pieces on, however, I wasn't impressed with the attempting to be 'cool' vibe I felt that was interspersed throughtout wonderful classical pieces. Classical is classic, leave it be.
If you are already familiar with classical music and want an eccelctic mix of some of your favourites, look elsewhere.

So you might have been as intrigued as I was when I first heard that NOW was putting together a compilation album that would take a foray into classical music, it's not really what you would call a definitive collection, it's really one that gives you a quick selection of some popular themes, a lot that's on offer is not really what might be called strictly classical, for a more representative collection the Classic Experience series is a very good choice.
The NOW albums though are about popularity and accessibility and this has a slightly awkward relationship with true classical music, but what they do have to draw on is recent reality show successes and familiarity in well known TV adverts which mean everyone and his dog knows the music in addition to film soundtracks some of which are very good pieces of music in their own right and could be described as classical, loosely these things could be defined as classical, but classical music is usually music of more depth and whilst a lot of famous pieces such as Mozart's Symphony No 40 could be described as popular it takes more of a deeper relationship with the music for the audience to get the most out of it.

Fantastic album, excellent tracks.
It was a present for my father and he hasn't stopped listening since he was given it.
Ideal for those interested in classical music and like variety.

This is a complete waste of money. It is an insult, not only to the listener,the various composers and to the artists themselves. It will not `introduce' people to so-called `classical' music. It is intended for the lazy, the idle and the pretentious - Beverley in `Abigail's Party' comes to mind. It is for sad pathetic Middle Class people who don't want to confess they really like trashy X-Factor rubbish so they put this abomination on the CD player and believe they're of superior intellect than the `proles'.
Does anyone really believe that `artists' like Russell Watson or Joe McElderry are in the same league as singers like Pavarotti or Kiri Te Kanawa because they're not and it's an insult to the latter two to put them in the same bracket. And what, I wonder do Nicola Benedetti or Bella Davidovich think at having their recordings butchered in such a fashion - if they even know it has been done. Whoever picked this selection is in an intellectual cess-pit. To cut Vaughan Williams' `Lark Ascending' down to m4 minutes is yet another insult to a composer who did so much to encourage amateurs to make music and was one of the composers who saved our Folk Song heritage from oblivion. You can only conclude that this is an issue aimed at those who have an attention span of about 4 minutes - 5 if they're pushed. Heavens only knows what they would make of Isaac Hayes's 18 minute tracks (if they've ever heard of him) let alone the 15 HOURS of Wagner's Ring or the 7 days of `Licht'.
This is NOT the way to either listen to or `get into' Classical Music. It's bad enough having bleeding chunks of `the good bits' from operas but shoving `Nimrod' or Variation 18 from Rachmaninov's `Paganini Rhapsody on a disc with the dross on this is an insult to those composers.
