What can I say... Don't bother with this album.
Russell A. Starner
The 1880s fall in the late Romantic period, which means that these pieces are generally quite close to the mental picture most Americans have of classical music.
Michael Lichter
Also there is a very easy way to view the composer of each piece - and other information.
J. Clifford

Using the NAXOS website, I've determined the Orchestra that performed each Symphony. The artist in the tag is actually the conductor.

Symphony no. 3 in F Major: Johannes Brahms - London Philharmonia Orchestra - Marin Alsop
Symphony no. 1 in D Major (Titan): Gustav Mahler - Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra - Michael Halasz
Symphony no. 5 in e minor, op 64: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra - Antoni Wit
Symphony no. 6 in D Major op. 60: Antonin Dvorak - Slovak Philharmonic Orchestra - Stephen Gunzenhauser
Symphony no. 3 in a minor (unfinished): Alexander Porfir'yevich Borodin - Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra - Stephen Gunzenhauser
Symphony no. 3 in c minor "Organ": Camille Saint-Saens - Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra - Imrich Szabo
Symphony no. 9 in d minor WAB 109: Anton Bruckner - Royal Scottish National Orchestra - Georg Tintner

As of October 7th, 2009, this album is totally free from Amazon. The selection of music is fantastic and the MP3s work with iTunes and is compatible with any MP3 player.

The bit rate on most to all of the tracks are above 200kpbs, joint stereo, and sample rate of 44hz.

Very soothing.

True, Amazon doesn't list the composers on the item page and that makes it difficult to know who composed each symphony. The price makes up for this however and you can see all the composers on the album cover artwork. The MP3s themselves are properly tagged (or at least the ones I've downloaded so far are) so you do get the composer info with the files themselves.

Fourth the Dvorak Symphony no. 6
Fifth the Borodin Symphony no. 3(Unfinished)

Five Hours Plus of Great Symphonic works all for free! All done in 256kbps. Mp3
Stereo Sound. All perfectly good performances from the Naxos Label. These are not merely samples from the works, they are complete performances of them. As they say free is good! These performances are good too!
Now how about a Volume 2??

Regarding the missing composers: The composer of each work is clearly recorded in the "Composer" ID3 tag, just where it belongs. Amazon is tagging them correctly, though with classical that can be a little confusing.

Love this music!

Also there is a very easy way to view the composer of each piece - and other information. Open the music in I-Tunes, then hit Ctrl-J. This brings up a box where you can check what information you want displayed in I-Tunes. Just check the 'Composer' box -- and there are the composers listed in your I-Tunes.

The performances on this CD may not be the best of the compositions here, but, well, it's free. In every case the performance is quite good - surprisingly good. This is certainly Amazon's best free album. I couldn't believe that Marin Alsop's Brahms 3rd was available here - it's a rather famous performance that would normally need to be bought.

Just click the download button and you'll own hours of great music.
