We enjoy all types of music and we have enjoyed this CD as well.

It sounds okay on my computer sound system, but on my high quality audio system the sound lacks clarity.

I use the "25 favorites" series when I am in the car or using my portable CD player.

This album provides a quick exposure to some of the best movements in the best symphonies. Many of the tracks will sound familiar. They are played well and have good sound quality.

As a novice musician, i have great appreciation for it.

When I purchased this CD I expected an album of average performances and OK sound. What I got though was 25 superbly clear stereo tracks rendered by quite competent orchestras.

Points of criticism here are minor ones.
Six Beethoven excerpts and only one of Brahms; an example of his magnificent 4th Symphony being conspicuously absent.

No actual liner notes, and the two pages of contents are printed in an exceedingly small font.

Hearing these favorite strains whets the appetite for the complete works, so the job of a "sampler" is well-fulfilled here (not a criticism!).

In summary, you will find this melange of edits from the VOX catalog most satisfying indeed!

TOTAL RUNNING TIME: 79:02

25 CLASSICAL DANCE FAVORITES is a lively collection of familiar music.

I use the "25 favorites" series when I am in the car or using my portable CD player. The quality is good for the price. They provide good variety without risking loss or damage of my more expensive collection from home....

As this sort of thing goes, it's not bad -- especially for such a low price. It's also not great. Each selection is okay, for the most part. A few of the performances are dubious. And, it's a "best of" collection, so it's pieces of symphonies, in no particular order, picked -- as far as I can tell -- completely randomly. It's okay if you want background music while you read or work on the computer or something, but if you want something for serious listening, this isn't it.

I bought this CD with high hopes that the quality would be good, the songs would truly be 'favorites', and that I wouldn't be throwing my money away. I was not disappointed. The quality is excellent, I recognize many of the symphonys, and the money I paid was very well spent. The play time is great, and I can listen to the same CD over and over again without getting bored. I love this CD!

I am really enjoying this symphony music! I love to listen to it when I am reading or as I am going to sleep at night. It has fast become one of my favorites. Hard to believe but true...when I start this CD my 10-year-old-cat stretches out in front of the CD player and naps!

I'm a music lover, not a music cretic nor m I a sound engineer expert. Nor do I understand why they call rap music, music. I simply enjoy listening to the musical genious of the old masters.

The sound quality was not crisp, and it sounded like a poor transfer of music. It sounds okay on my computer sound system, but on my high quality audio system the sound lacks clarity.
