Though I'm not usually one for 'Best of...' and 'Greatest Hits' compilations, I purchased this double album recently and thought that I'd perhaps give it as a present to someone after a few listens, as a useful introduction perhaps to the magic and range of Mozart's music. I found to my surprise that it is a wonderful album, with a very well chosen range of music- arias from the great operas, moving choral music, gorgeous adagios, lively and inspiring pieces, and all performed by impeccable performers. This compilation is very well worth the price, and makes a marvellous gift to oneself as well as to appreciative friends.

Putting a title like `Worlds Greatest' on the front of a CD is obviously a bold claim, and one which many people have become so familiar with that they tend to take it with a pinch of salt. There are so many ways of trying to catch the buyers interest that very few titles like these really jump out at the buyer.

This one did jump out at me, though not so much for the choice of tracks, more for the quality of artists who perform them. Considering this is only a 2CD set, far too short for any Mozart compilation, the list of performers reads like a roll call for the best `Last Night of the Proms' ever staged.

A simple list of some of the orchestras, conductors, singers and soloists sums up this gem of an album:

Orchestras: English Chamber Orchestra, Vienna chamber Orchastra, Academy of Ancient Music, Vienna State Opera Concert Choir, Vienna Mozart Ensemble, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, English Chamber Orchestra.

Conductors: Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Georg Solti, Herbert von Karajan, Christopher Hogwood.

Soloists (singers): Cecilia Bartoli, Emma Kirkby, Renee Fleming, Anne Sofie von Otter, Bryn Terfel.

This is a collection of quality musicians performing some of Mozarts finest works.

Alternatives to this are:

`The Very Best of Mozart' 2CD set on the Naxos label (3* out of 5)
`Ultimate Mozart - The Essential Masterpieces' a 5CD set on the Decca label (3* out of 5)
`Mozart Complete Works' a 170CD set of ALL Mozart's lifetime works (5* out of 5)

A good selection of Mozart's most well known pieces, which is a good sampler ,and from which newcomers to Mozart can
get some idea of the repertoire available to them.
A good quality recording, with a particularly exceptional rendering of the "Queen of the Night" aria by Sumi Jo.
Good value double CD.

This was my first Mozart album and I frequently listen to it. I was compelled to give it a five star review as I feel this album deserves a higher rating. It contains 2 cds of soothing bliss. I've noticed a few reviews from Mozart fans gave it less than five stars because they expected something a bit different as it says "The World's Best Mozart Album" - however, for a newbie to Mozart I thoroughly recommend this album as it has got me into classical music and more Mozart.

Contains most of Mozart's best, most well-known music. Really good recordings, too - high sound quality, vibrant and deeply felt as appropriate. Only lacks one star because it doesn't include everything I personally would want, but I know that's a bit unreasonable.

Tremendous value collection of great Mozart and would make a great introduction to the composer or small collection for someone not wishing to delve too deeply. I bought it for several bits and pieces to accompany what I collect in a more serious vein.
