Included are a two-disc set of highlights from Mozart's masterpieces--including orchestral, chamber, instrumental, operatic and choral works--as well as a special bonus disc entitled Serene and Sublime--The Great Mozart Adagios, featuring the composer's music at its most beautiful and seductive. The collection brings together landmark Mozart recordings by George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra, James Levine and the Vienna Philharmonic, the Budapest String Quartet, conductors Sir Colin Davis and Rafael Kubelik, pianists Rudolf Serkin and Alicia de Larrocha, violinist Pinchas Zukerman, flutist Sir James Galway, harpist Marisa Robles, and such singers as Leontyne Price, Dame Margaret Price and Thomas Quasthoff.

Not Bad at All

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This three disc set is great if you are just getting into the genius that is Mozart. Most of the recordings are of a high quality and the final disc, "Serene and Sublime" which showcases Mozart's music at its most beautiful, is really great. And for the price you really can't go wrong. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to be introduced to Mozart's music."
