An extraordinary surprise!

"I am a physician, who in the process of making rounds on the Alzhemiers unit of a nursing home, was stopped in my tracks by the sound of beautiful music coming from the room of an elderly woman with a history of severe depression. Beethoven's Pathetique, in all is melancholic beauty saturated the room with meaning, very sensitively interpreted for strings which lent a gentleness to the work without sacrificing passion. She invited me to sit and listen, which I did. It made a wonderful beginning of my day. I plan to use this in my office in the expectation of similar calming effects on my patients. What a lucky find, and an absolute steal at this price."
Old favorite rediscovered on CD

"This is the CD version of a vinyl album I possessed in my youth. It was one of my earliest introductions to the world of Baroque classical music. Don't remember where I bought the original platter (though a Sound Warehouse in San Antonio...definitely San Antonio...is probably the source) but I do remember that I ended up losing it to a friend at the University of Texas at Austin in the late '80s. I had often thought about that vinyl album -- I remembered it's name, the rather unremarkable title, The World's Most Beloved Melodies. I never gathered I would be able to track it down again. But I recently ran across this on Amazon and the song selection struck a "chord" within me. THIS was that album. The cover is different -- the original being probably one of the dullest green things you've ever forgotten about -- and another recent search on eBay turned up several used (as well as still-sealed) copies on LP. I ordered a sealed old-stock copy.
Haven't received the vinyl yet, but I can heartily recommend this CD. The sound quality is superb, the selections, a bit cliched at this point in my life, yet essential none-the-less...and the value -- immeasurable. An excellent introduction to classical music for young people and a high quality refresher course for those in the know."
