3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the novice June 7, 2002
By ali
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The recordings on this disc are pretty good. However, the editors selected only the *loud* parts, as indicated by the title. I was pretty disappointed to find that the pieces are, in many cases, edited to reflect the most famous themes, etc, instead of including the whole work. In general, I would recommend this to the classical music novice, or someone who wants to expand their knowledge of classical music in general. Those who already are familiar with these pieces will probably feel gypped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet May 16, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best collection of moving classics on one CD that I have ever seen. The only drawback is that 25 pieces in 75 minutes means each piece averages 3 minutes. However, I prefer that to less pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will like this! February 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I had purchased an abundance of the "Favorites" collection and some were better than others.
This CD is at the top of them all. They may be short, but not that short. Wondrous music.
I can almost guarantee that you will like this music.
Well worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely something for everybody! January 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought my first copy of this because it had the William Tell Overture, the 1812 Overture, and Ride of the Valkyries. We are raising 4 kids and live in a rural area, and I've found that there are fewer fights while in the car if we have engaging music playing... LOUDLY. I'm not a big fan of 'their' music, so I like finding music we both identify with. ("Hey! I know that one! It was on Bugs Bunny!" or "Hey! It's the Olympics!")
It actually became so popular with the kids that they wanted to borrow it to play in their rooms, so I gave them each a copy for Christmas. You certainly can't beat the price, and it's great music to clean your room to.
What surprised me the most were the songs that each one of them identified with the most. The boy that I thought would argue for #2 (Mars), sat in the car while I was in the grocery store playing #13 (Romeo and Juliet) over and over.
We went through the car wash last weekend, and I did not have the disk with me. It was just not as fun. And I don't think the car got as clean, either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good selection October 2, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD to use in my classroom as listening examples. I'm not just a super big fan of some of the performances, but they are all good and for the price you can't beat it. That's why I gave it 5 stars. It's worth more than it costs by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars thunderous applause August 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a who's-who of great pieces of music you have heard all of your life, and never knew the names and stories! I listened to it over and over in the car and had my own concert! A friend borrowed it to add music to his Home Movies and it was perfect!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music, but short November 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These works are all very beautiful and energizing, however I would have preferred to have the whole song of each work on the CD. Instead they took the most robust part of each piece and played it for three minutes. For me, it detracts from the beauty or energy of the song, but for others who may not want to listen to the whole song, it is very well put together.

I expected to be excited by this CD but it was tame at best. Several selections that I did not recognize fell far below my definition of thunderous. Read more
