5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it just for the 1812, plus 49 other bonus tracks September 22, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
At the bargain price, I'm happy to have an amazing recording of the 1812 Overture. And there are 49 more "bonus tracks" as well.

The 1812 Overture is of course very well known, and this performance is a gem. The strings are very romantic, and the full orchestra is skilled and precise. The sound is excellent, and very well balanced. I'm a huge fan of the 1812, and many performances of it are in my library. This recording is superb.

The opening of this recording is slower than is common, and very romantic. The strings are very, very beautiful. Many performances of the 1812 use cannons and carillon in the finale; this one does not. Thundering bass drums replace the cannons, and orchestral bells replace the carillon. But that doesn't diminish this recording -- the brass is strong, and the finale sounds full.

On the other hand, if you're looking for an 1812 Overture that will show off your new 500-watt stereo and subwoofer, check out Erich Kunzel's Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture etc. / Kunzel, Cincinnati Pops (Multichannel Hybrid SACD). Alternatively, Antal Dorati's 1960 recording for Mercury Living Presence Tchaikovsky: 1812 Festival Overture, Op.49; Capriccio Italien / Beethoven: Wellington's Victory was far ahead of its time, and still sounds great.

3.0 out of 5 stars MP3s of average quality October 21, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Good selection but an average quality recording. Not what you used to get when purchasing DDD audio CDs. I would also prefer a multi-volume set so that some of the pieces are not shortened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth all 99 Pennies March 4, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As with all the 50 Must-Have albums and other similar "big boxes," performance and recording quality is variable between so-so and good, but never terrible or great. Seriously, though, for 99 cents, you get to own six hours of some pretty spectacular music. Regardless of how well it's played or recorded, pieces like the piano concerto, Marche Slave, the Nutcracker and the 1812 Overture are such fantastic marvels of the musical world, their brilliance of composition shines through. This collection is great for research reference as well, as any aspiring music student will probably want to listen and analyze a number of these works and some point in his or her life. For the fanatics, including myself, superior recordings of these masterpieces exist elsewhere for more money, but in the meantime, for 99 cents, this will certainly whet your appetite and fill out a lot of holes in your Tchaikovsky collection.

At a very good price. Performances are good and these Amazon bargains afford one the opportunity to explore music without being hurt if you don't care for the selections. Amazon has many classical bargains and at these prices you can afford to experiment. This album is quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music and an awesome deal January 12, 2013
By jeff
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The selection and quality of the pieces are excellent. Tchaikovsky is always my favorite.
The only problem I have - not the music - is that some pieces are out of order, for example, the three movements of the No.1 piano concerto are not in sequence, and I haven't figured out how to play them in the correct sequence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Album of a Great Classical Series March 13, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Tchaikovsky is one of my favorite classical/modern composers. This album provides the listener with some of his greatest works. The choices of the pieces on the album are excellent and gives a listener a feel for the works of this accomplished artist.Highly recommended for winding down or for gaining concentration while reading or writing.
