5.Gymnopedie #1 -- Satie
6.Pathetique Sonata II -- Beethoven
7.New World Symphony II -- Dvorak
8.Nocturne in F -- Chopin
9.Fur Elise -- Beethoven
10.The Swan -- Saint-Saens
11.Goldberg Variations, Aria -- Bach
12.Piano Concerto #2 I -- Rachmaninoff
13.Recuerdos -- Tarrega
14.Song Without Words -- Mendelssohn
15.Ave Maria -- Gounod (after Bach)

Some of the ID3 tags have the orchestra conductor's name in the composer ID3 field; most of the composer fields are blank.

I appreciate all the free albums and tracks from Amazon. I wish they were more careful with ID3 tags.

Track 5 seems to have some vinyl surface noise.

The price is right. Delete any tracks you don't like. They're mostly old warhorses. If you don't have any classical music in your collection, this isn't a bad start.

A wonderful collection of soft and relaxing classical music. I am an average guy that owns no classical albums and is only familiar with classical songs that that are in pop culture. I recognized and enjoyed every song on this album.

Downloaded for free through Amazon (still think it's up for grabs for el zilcho). Great selection and nothing hinders it's goal. Pachelbel's canon, Fur Elise, and Ave Maria are the heavy hitters of this album, and have a good supporting cast of other songs for a nice classical mixture. Not a lot of other well known songs in the album, but well worth the price of free!

I downloaded this album when amazon was having a promotion. I actually am listening to it now...and almost every day at work. The music just soothes my nerve and probably lowers my blood pressure. It has most of the classical music you are already familiar with.

I would expect more for content thats hundred of years old.
The selection is questionable, I dont find songs with bad audio recordings in the context of "relaxing". There is noticeable hissing and popping on a few of the tracks. I expected better quality.

I ordered this CD because of the music but...the quality of tghe CD just isn't all that good and I really was upset by that. Sometimes it just shows that the quality isn't there. Sorry I know you don't want to hear this but it is what it is.

I was looking for a nice, relaxing album to fall asleep by, and for that purpose this album might not be bad. But, just listening to the sample tracks, there are at least two tracks which are incorrectly labeled! I am a classical piano player and have personally played and have the music for the songs in question: the one labeled "Pathetique Sonata: Adagio", while it is indeed an Adagio by Beethoven, is the second movement from the Moonlight Sonata, not the Sonata Pathetique. And the one labeled "Song Without Words", while it is indeed by Mendelssohn, should correctly be titled "Venetian Boat Song"! (The "Song Without Words" is a melody by Tchaikovsky!)
Maybe I'm a stickler for detail, but it just seems to cheapen the quality of the album unnecessarily; and would be especially misleading for those who are new to classical music and unfamiliar with the correct songs and artists.
