CD Reviews

For the price you can't lose
John Murray | Ohio | 02/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 2 cd set consists of, as the title indicates, various 20c pieces or movements from the Naxos catalog. Sound quality is uniformly high, although for some such as Stockhausen's it's not clear if that's good or bad. What is excellent is the variety of the collection--some familiar (Debussy), others not, some pretty, others intentionally weird. Few will find every piece to his or her taste, but many listeners who do not spend much time on 20c music will find something to like. Overall, a great introduction to a period of much off-putting, yes, but also much compelling music."
Excellent overview of contemporaneous classic music

"excellent overview of contemporaneous classic music.

Should be continued, plenty more 20th-century composers to be discovered."
