Great CD
07/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the CD that got me started in classical music. Now that I look back on it it is probably the best CD I own. It has fifteen different tracks from fifteen different composers.The highlights of this CD are The Bells of St. Genevieve by the little-known French Baroque composers Marin Marais and the beautiful orchestration of Bach's Toccatta in D. All tracks are extremely well done.My only complaints are that Strauss's waltz seems to have been recorded to low and that you get merely excerpts of the overtures of William Tell and 1812 and of the Bach's Toccatta and Fugue.This is offset, however, by great performances by Eugene Ormandy's Philadelphia Orchestra and Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops."
