VARIOS INTERPRETES

Amazon.co.uk

Shelves may be groaning under the weight of the dozens of chillout/smooth/calm classical compilations available but they are going to have to make room for another, The Very Best of Relaxing Classics. A quick glance at the tracklisting reveals the usual suspects--Pachelbel's Canon in D, Barber's Adagio for Strings and the slow movement of Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No.2. But it's not all predictable. Liszt's Consolation No.3, a poignant piano miniature, is most welcome as is Elgar's Sospiri for strings, harp and organ. Many of the pieces have become well known by being used in films and television programmes as well as for adverts: witness the Intermezzo from Mascagni's opera Cavalleria rusticana (Raging Bull and Kleenex), "Morning" from Peer Gynt by Grieg (Nescafé), John Tavener's haunting choral piece The Lamb (Orange) and the glorious Adagio (although, sadly, only an extract) from Schubert's String Quint! et in C (Inspector Morse). Slightly puzzling is the inclusion of two versions of Puccini's much-loved "O mio babbino caro" from his opera Gianni Schicchi--an instrumental version provides the first track and the compilation concludes with the original (featuring the divine Renée Fleming). --Rebecca Agnew

This is a wonderfully successful collection of pieces.
Collections of this type are not my normal cup of tea (more Beethoven Quartets and the like) but this is very beautiful indeed. Well selected pieces, well played in excellent sound. It would be a waste if this was played only in the car. A real gem!

This easy listening classic album has all the ingredients of in-car entertainment, but, due to some poor orchestrations, is not as rewarding as it could have been. Adequate for shopping journeys or teatime background music, its professional qualities are rather lacking. Pleasant but ultimately disappointing.

All the classics on two discs makes this very relaxing background music - disc two is slightly louder and less well known pieces.
