"This box set, along with 2 others, Passion - Most Famous Orchestral Spectaculars & Rhapsody in Blue - Ultimate Piano Collection, from the same company, have been offered at incredibly low prices (around $15) and that is a value that you just cannot pass up. And if the price is back to it's normal range of about $50.00 I would say it is still worth it. But, I think the prices on these sets go up and down a lot, so if you can be patient, keep watching and you should be able to get it for a steal.
The pieces on this collection of 20 CDs focus on the strings and the flute. Every CD has been remastered and is great quality. The list of music, as you can see, is huge, as is the number of composers. This being the case, I can highly recommend this as a PERFECT starting point for people that are new to classical; with the other 2 box sets I listed above, this presents a varied and deep collection to begin your foray in to classical music. You can introduce yourself to a massive amount of music (over 60 hours with the 3 sets) and you can rest assured that each of these is of good quality and not just some music shop bargain bin slop.
I do have some of these compositions as I have been seeking to grow my collection, but exposure to different interpretations is just as enlightening as hearing a composition for the first time. So this would be great for established classical listeners as well.
And at the price of 1 CD, you just really can't go wrong.
Buy with confidence and be prepared to be delighted. And please do look at the other 2 collections referenced above as they are also a delight and a bargain to say the least.
