5.0 out of 5 stars Four hours of blissful listening on one album August 12, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this remarkable album when it first appeared as an MP3 Daily Deal. It was an incredible deal to get fifty great classical music numbers on a single album. These pieces include some of the most beautiful and memorable classical music ever recorded. I couldn't have told you the names of many of the recordings, but I recognized most of the tunes as soon as I heard them. Most of these are orchestral instrumentals, but I counted about 7-8 operatic songs, including the classic "Nessun Dorma."

I don't know if these are the actual recordings from the movies, but they're very good. The album is four hours of blissful listening for just about any music lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible deal for a buck! August 17, 2012

If you're a movie fan, this is an amazing deal - only 99 cents for 50 great movie themes (some just classical music used in movies, but still great)

First of all I usually listen to classical music loudly but I have to be careful when listening to these songs as the Star Wars theme song is on here and that can be very scary if you have the volume up! It's right after "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic so it's like calm music and then DAAAAA DA DA DAAAAAAAAAA *cue Star Wars music*. Oh man if you are napping while listening to this you will definitely wake up when that happens.

Most of the songs on here are standard classical songs that just happen to be in movies also. There really isn't too many songs specifically original from movies. I like the collection though and it's great to have if you don't have the other songs already.

Track listing:
1. Johann Sebastian Bach - Goldberg Variations (From "Shame")
2. Bedrich Smetana - Má Vlast From "The Tree of Life")
3. Richard Wagner - Tristan und Isolde (From "Melancholia")
4. Vincenzo Bellini - Casta Diva (From "The Iron Lady")
5. Pyotr Tchaikovsky - Swan Lake (From "Black Swan")
6. Ludwig Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 7 (From "The King's Speech)
7. Claude Debussy - Clair de Lune (From "Twilight")
8. Johann Sebastian Bach - Cello Suite No. 1 (From "The Soloist")
9. Edvard Grieg - Peer Gynt (From "The Social Network")
10. Johann Sebastian Bach - Concerto for 2 Violins (From "Music of the Heart")
11. Frédéric Chopin - Polonaise (From "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button")
12. Antonio Vivaldi - Concerto in G for Strings (From "Marie Antoinette")
13. Pyotr Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6 (From "The Aviator")

4.0 out of 5 stars Music for everyone October 18, 2012
By attic
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
For the price, this is a great collection. On my own I would never be able to put together such a diverse set of sounds. The variety keeps you listening as you realize that so many great classics go unnoticed while at the movies. Although a couple of arrangements were not to my liking, it did not distract from the overall enjoyment of such a fine collection. Definitely something for everyone. Easily a recommendation.
