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!

For the price, this series of CD's is amazing. I teach a music history class for middle schoolers, and I find a great selection of some of the most well-known pieces. I want my students to be familiar with the most well-known and well-loved works, so this is a great series for me. Of course, I enjoy listening to them myself. Anyone who is a true Classical musician might be disappointed, however, as many of the selections are not played in their entirety. There's no way they could fit 25 Symphony movements in a 70 minute CD.
They do fade out pretty tastefully. For my use, it's great, though, since I never play more than a minute or so of a selection for my 7th and 8th graders.

Ordered this for my 90 year old Father. Classical music sooths him and he listens to it for hours. They got it to him real quick, a day sooner than I thought. Great work and he likes it.
