Never had I come across such a comprehensive yet consistently astounding album as this. The most passionate pieces by history's greatest composers will enrich your rainy evening for over 4 hours, not faltering on a single note. For those who may not feel my level of inspiration from classical music, if ever there were an album to convince them, it is this one. Enough information for the untrained ear to casually enjoy, and enough pure magic for classical fanatics such as myself to live within this album as if Hurricane Sandy just broke open the shell of Manhattan to reveal a rose-hung pathway into the Shire. Everything from shining, delicate composers to heavy composers with storms in their heart - and even, though rarely, chilling opera - this will make you love classical music, and if you do, you will be so overjoyed, you will write your first Amazon.com review.

A very inclusive compilation of the very best the classical genre has to offer.
Many of the pieces, especially Danse Macabre, have been remastered masterfully; this album has many of my new favorite versions of these pieces.
Ridiculously well priced, I highly recommend this album for any who enjoy classical music.
