3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of music, competent performances March 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This download is definitely worth the low, low price being asked. There's a lot of music here for less than the price of a hamburger at McDs.

The performances are all competent if unexceptional. This isn't the Vienna Philharmonic, after all. The performances are all straight, ie: they don't try to exude the feeling of give and take one hears in the very best Strauss performances.

But for the price, well worth it.

The quality of the sound is not that good, but anything that has been created by the Strauss Family is simply amazing. It is a marvelous collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wide variety, good value, occasional sound defects August 26, 2012
By George
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The performances are OK. Occasional recording snaps and pops. But many seldom heard selections and interesting impromptu flourishes - more like a village band concert than a symphony performance. And where else can your hear the Carmen Quadrille? Opera in 3/4 time. I can just see the swirling ladies each with a red rose.

I agree that these are not desert-island recordings. Many of the performances are at times imprecise and otherwise less than captivating, especially those of the familiar works. (And yes, I would not be surprised if cheerier portraits of the featured composers could be found.)

On the basis of the recording quality alone, without regard to price, this set would not be particularly distinctive.

But for $3, the performances and the sound quality are plenty good enough to serve as suitable introductions to many lesser-known Strauss family works. [For example, by Johann Strauss I, the set contains (in addition to his Radetzky March) the Loreley-Rheinklänge Walzer, a nice collection of waltzes with horn echoes in the first strain (around :40).]

For purchasers who would play this set as casual listeners in the car or as background music (rather than as conductors for intensive score study), I would put the Bang-for-Buck Quotient (BBQ) at a perfect 10 out of 10.

1.0 out of 5 stars Laughably dull April 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
If your music budget is basically zero, by all means take advantage of this music-by-the yard offer. But if you actually end up liking this music you owe it to yourself to hear some good performances, especially by the better German/Austrian orchestras. These performances are completely lacking in the spirit of dance that is the inspiration for these pieces. It's performances like this that make people think classical music is boring.
