I was pretty impressed by this sampler, which contains some real gems and exposed me to some music I had never heard before. While I didn't find every track to my taste, as far as free samplers go this is a very nice one. Here's a rundown by track and composer:

1. Chris Brubeck - Danza del Soul: Celebraçion de Vida. This is a jazzy orchestral track with a Latin groove by Chris Brubeck -- Dave Brubeck's son. I hadn't heard Chris Brubeck before and I was pretty impressed.

2. Matthias Pintscher - Sonic Eclipse: Occultation. An avant-garde piece, a little too wild for my melody-loving, pedestrian tastes. If you like composers such as George Crumb or Pierre Boulez from back in the 1960s, you might enjoy this one.

3. Camille Saint-Saëns - Allegro Appassionato in B minor. Excellent performance of this short Romantic work for piano and cello.

4. Bach - Variation No. 10 (from the Goldberg Variations). Excellent performance of this excerpt. I enjoyed the way the pianist was able to bring out the cut-off, staccato feeling of harpsichord notes although playing a grand piano. Very precise reading, not a flowing Romanticized one -- which is just fine by me for Bach.

5. Beethoven - Symphony No. 2, 3rd movement. A fine performance.

6. Giuseppe Ferlendis - Oboe Concerto No. 3 in C Major, Adagio. I had never heard of Giuseppe Ferlandis before -- an oboe player from Mozart's day. This is a pleasant piece for oboe in a light Classical style. I'm glad to have heard it here.

7. Gustav Holst - Mercury, The Winged Messenger (from The Planets). Again, a fine performance.

8. Claude Debussy - Arabesque No 1 in E from L 66. Made me remember once again why I like Debussy's piano style so much, with all its watery-sounding whole-tone runs.

Allegro Classical Summer 2011 Sampler is a beautiful music album and the best part is it was a free download to my Kindle. The album contains music by Beethoven, Bach, and Debussy plus other classical pieces. There is one jazz piece by Chris Brubeck, Dave Brubeck's son that has a latin feel and is very good. It is an excellent ablum for pleasant listening.

I am not a classical music expert, normally Rock and Roll, but I like classical from time to time, and I enjoy it

These are very nice classical music samplers, with a variety of forms, from traditional to more contemporary, and even some nice opera (most non-opera fans can enjoy a number or two).

Its a nice classical mix download. If you are into classical music you can never have too many classical mixes.
