Great value

"I was initially a bit timid about purchasing this given the very low price. This collection of tunes is mostly performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, which reassured me of the quality. I was not disappointed. It is a nice mix of rather famous pieces and the performances are of good quality, despite what the price may imply."
A very good album

"This wonderful CD contains eight tunes associated with horror. It has Mussorgsky's A Night on Bald Mountain which is about a witches' Sabbath, Gynt's In the Hall of the Mountain King is about the king of the trolls, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor which is the ultimate in "Phantom of the Opera" tunes, Camille Saint-Saens' Danse Macabre about the appearance of Death on Halloween, Wagner's Flying Dutchman Overture about a damn ship, Bazzini's Dance of the Goblins, Weber's Der Freischütz Overture, and Berlioz's March to the Scaffold.

To make it even better, the production was made by the London Symphony Orchestra, who did an excellent job with the pieces. The sound quality is very good, and sounded great in my earphones.

Now, don't be put off by the title, you can ignore the "Terror" angle if you want, and just enjoy the pieces for themselves. This is a very good album, one that I really enjoy listening to, and don't hesitate to recommend!"
