A Fine Way to Spend One's Evening
The Otaku | Middle Eastern Seaboard | 06/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To start, I'll say my family (with the possible exception of my sister) is a fan of classical music. I was raised on Mozart adagios and Beethoven symphonies. When I came across this album in my parents collection not long ago, I began to listen quite avidly to it. The "Air on G String from Orchestral Suite 3, BWV 1068" is quite probably my favorite JS Bach pieces (probably due to its usage in "End of Evangelion") and the "Canon in D" has long inspired emotional scenes in my novels. While I'm sure many disagree, I find other recordings of the piece less emotional from my experience.

I rarely listen to the second half of the CD (my favorites are in the first quarter of the album), but all are relaxing and have excellent tone. The one piece I do not enjoy is the Vivaldi's Lute Concerto in D. For some reason, the sound of a classical guitar doesn't lull me into relaxation.

Overall, a very relaxing CD with great voice."
Nice CD for the office, or the ride home from work

"A quite nice collection of classical favorites, including Bach's "Air on a G String" played by the ever-talented Academy of St.-Martin-in-The-Fields and Borodin's "Nocturne from String Quartet. Of course they didn't leave out everyone's favorites - Pachelbel's "Canon" and Rachamaninoff's "Rhapsody on a THeme of Paganini" which would alone make this CD worth buying. Nice easy listening for in the car or your office cube."
Simply Wonderful!

"Are you ever searching for a great, relaxing, classical album that has more than just a single composer such as Chopin or Vivaldi? This is the album for you. Great classical composers all together on one album that can help soothe the day's stresses away. Great from start to finish and one of my favorites in my collection of classical music."
