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.

50 Masterpieces, and each and every selection a pure joy. This is a great bang for your buck especially if you love classical music like I do. A great find!

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.

The price for this collection is just rediculously cheap. I have all of the works in this collection on CD and by performers of my personal, discriminating choice. The reason that I bought this collection is for convenience. I thought that it would be nice to have the versatility and portability to be able to listen to music of my choosing while using my Kindel Fire as a reader and the cost of the collection is next to nothing. I enjoy very much being able to listen to these works in the background while reading. The performances are very satisfactory. I am amazed, jealous and very thankful that today people have such vast collections of the world's finest music available at dirt cheap prices. I have spent a life time searching and acquiring my music collection at significant expense (and nevermind the evolution from LP to Reel-to-Reel to CD)

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.

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.
