"This is a fun set of recordings. I purchased it because I didn't have Enescu's Romanian Rhapsodies and, every now and then, I get an urge to listen to them (love the woodwinds) as they're light happy pieces that can take your mind to relaxing places. Although the other pieces in this collection are adequate, they really don't do much for me. Of course, if rhapsodies, in my collection and other dances are something you enjoy, I highly recommend George Szell's recording of Dvorák's Slavonic Dances. Without question, Szell's recordings of the Dvorák pieces Dvorák: Slavonic Dances are the standard against which all other works of this genre must be compared to."
Beautiful music

"The end of the romantic era saw some of the most beautiful music ever composed. Many of these melodies were actually derived from folk music of various ethnic groups within central and eastern Europe. This album contains some great examples of this; Enescu's two Romanian rhapsodies, Dvorak's Slavonic rhapsody and Liszt's Hungarian rhapsody. The music is beautiful, exciting and quite danceble. Listening to it envokes images of gypsies dancing around a village in Transylvania at a celebration or holiday. This music is also quite rare and not commonly heard on the radio; hence a good buy for the price. I highly recommend it."
