4.0 out of 5 stars Composers missing -- here's a list July 19, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Good collection, but as happens with too many of these collections, Amazon does not include composer metadata in the MP3 files. C'mon, Amazon: classical listeners care about the composer!

Here is the composer information for this collection as best I can tell.

Composer List

1 - 3 Tomaso Albinoni: Concerto a Cinque
4 - 6 Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto in G Minor, Summer
7 - 9 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Divertimento in F
10 - 16 Georges Bizet: Orchestral Suite from Carmen
17 - 19 Arcangelo Corelli: Sonata in A Minor
20 - 30 Georg Friedrich Handel: Water Music Suite
31 Roman Hoffstetter: String Quartet, Op 3 No 5
32 - 35 Wilhelm van Wassenaer: Concerto in G
36 Luigi Boccherini: String Quartet, Op 13, No 5
37 - 49 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Eine Kleine Nachtmusic & Divertimenti
50 - 53 Felix Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night's Dream
54 - 56 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Divertimento
57 - 61 Georg Friedrich Handel: Music for Royal Fireworks
62 - 64 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Serenade in D Major
65 - 69 Ludwig van Beethoven: Pastoral Symphony

As mentioned by other reviewers, tracks 47 - 49 are defective, with many skips, pops, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars From The Bach Guild - Files Fixed August 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Hello - just a belated review to let everyone know that the defective files were fixed. To be honest, material from a personal collection got mixed with the files meant for downloading. Particularly sorry because David Blum's recordings for Vanguard deserve as much attention as we can possible give them!

2.0 out of 5 stars Corrupt files, again July 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This isn't a review, but a warning. The download has corrupt files - I've found at least three so far. The last three movements of David Blum's recording of Mozart's K. 287 have noise that sounds like a skipping CD. I've contacted Amazon Customer Service about the problem. I'll update when the problem is resolved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellant recordings except for 3 bad tracks July 13, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I got this yesterday and listened to it stream using the Amazon Cloud Player app on my iPad (3rd generation), listened to parts of it with iPod earbuds, and listened to some other parts by Airplay through Apple TV and external speakers connected to my tv. The recordings sound excellant except for tracks 47, 48 and 49 in which some parts skip and sound disjointed. I contacted Amazon Customer Service and the technical people on their mp3 team will be checking this problem. I asked if it would be fixed, like bad formatting is sometimes fixed on Kindle ebooks, and was told that they will let the manufacturer know and when the problem is resolved I will be notified so that I can redownload/restream it. Anyway I don't think it deserves only 2 stars like the other comment. You still get 66 good tracks that give you several hours of excellant recordings and a nice variety of classical music for not too much money. So I did not ask for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corrupt files fixed! Sounds really good! August 6, 2012

Drinking a glass of wine, listening to the set----- for 99 cents? What a great deal. The files that were corrupt seem to have been fixed. Thanks!

This is a nice collection. three corrupted tracks 47-49 and a lack of information on performers and composers make this a bargain that could have been. At 99c it is probably still a bargain but the price is likely to rise over the next few weeks and Amazon/Bach Guild cannot expect to sell many downloads unless they fix the problems in this, and then tell people that they have been fixed (including offering a download of the corrupt tracks to those of us who have already bought the issue).

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Box Bargains September 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The Big Box series, which includes a Gustav Leonhardt collection and a Mahler collection as well as the Summer Box, is a great bargain, offering a wide and generous selection of music at an incredible price. To purchase these offerings on CDs would cost a fortune. To buy them for $.99 each is a marvel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, great performaces, great value July 16, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Yes, as the others have pointed out, there are three bad tracks on here, but it appears that the issue is getting attention and being fixed.

Great music on this one, including lots of favorites by Beethoven, Mozart, Handel, Vivaldi, and others... Amazon is offering it for a great price right now, pick it up! Great for streaming from the cloud player while working!
