If you only ever own one classical collection, I suggest you let this be the one. If, like me, you are a casual occasional listener to the classics, as opposed to a connoisseur, and are more regularly inclined to spend more of your listening hours immersed in other waveforms, take a moment to ponder the sheer genius that created these complex immortal fabrics of music, with nothing more than a pen, a sheet of paper, and a brain the size of a solar system. Absolutely wonderful, this.

I've been a Mozart fan since I was quite young, I used to play his music on my gran's piano, which had genuine ivory keys. Easy to play, hard to master, beautiful on the ear. If a note jars, it's not Mozart, you've made a mistake. Even when he's parodying his peers (Musical Joke) it's still wonderful and wonderfully amusing to boot. Like I said, what's not to like?
