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.

If you like Classic FM this will hit the spot for you: you get to listen to snippets of music, but without the adverts. I bought it for my son who listens Classic FM, and he seems to be pleased with it. Just be aware it may not have all your favourites on it!

A nice varied album with lots of my favourite music on. Importantly the quality of the recording is very good, which makes all the difference.

The music on this collection is varied, from all styles and group sizes and instrumentalists. The Classic FM Hall of Fame is a collection of the favourite music as voted by listeners of Classic FM. There are 4 CD's included with 42 tracks in total.

The standard of the recordings on this collection is second to none. You have conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Sir Neville Mariner, Sir Charles Mackerras, and Sir George Solti to name just a few.

Overall, this is a great collection of some of the most well known and popular classical music, played by some of the worlds finest musicians.

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.
