It is strange that native composers were not chosen in so many cases, especially in the one dedicated to Spain where we have two Russian and two French selections, however good they might be. But the most famous Swiss music ever written was composed by Rossini, so what the hey!
First the minuses. These sets were designed for the music and the visual without any reference to specifics. By this I mean, there are no subtitles to let you know where in Europe you are or what music is being played. Since there is a "Random Order" option, your player will not display the track being shown. I found this quite annoying at first viewing and had to keep my eye on the back of the DVD case to try to find where I was musically--where I was geographically was quite impossible.Read more ›
