"This little item is extremely original because it involves classical music being played in a jazz style. Most people don't seem to appreciate classical music, and most don't seem to appreciate jazz, so I doubt many would like this, but i sure know I did. I have an extensive music collection, and this was the missing link. I thought I had everything before I bought this. You can seriously call this the gift for someone who has everything. The music-lover will enjoy this. Make sure they either like classical or jazz, though, or it might not be a good gift idea.Contrary to it's name, not all of the songs are written by Beethoven. there is acollection of music by all kinds of famous classical artists, performed by a collection of famous jazz artists. Everyone knows most of the songs, you just probably don't know it. A lot of poeple know a lot of classical songs, but just don't know their names. This CD is top quality, even though the songs were recorded in the 30's and the 40's. It's surprising. The CD is like nothing I've ever heard before, and that is the majot reason that I really like it. And because most of the songs are familiar even to those who don't listen to classical music."
