I wish the composers were all ID'd in this series. It's a bother when creating correct ID3v2 tags. I can't find anyplace on the web that makes this task easy, including the publisher's website. After looking up each track individually, here's what I've come up with:

(Various) - Menuet I [too ambiguous to identify]
Beethoven (Evelyne Dubourg) - Piano Sonata No. 14 in C Sharp Minor, Op. 27 No.2, Moonlight I. Adagio sostenuto
Beethoven (Istvan Szekely ) - Piano Sonata No.8 in C Minor, Pathétique II. Adagio cantabile
Brahms (Dénes Várjon) - Intermezzo in B Flat Minor, Op.117 No.2
Brahms (Various) - Cradle Song
Chopin (Evelyne Dubourg) - Nocturne in C Sharp Minor, Op. Posth.
Chopin (Simeon Simovn) - Waltz, Op.2 No.2
Dvorak (Jenö Jando) - Humoresque in G Flat Major, Op. 101
Grieg (Jenö Jando) - Lyric Pieces, Op.12 No.1, Arietta
Grieg (Various) - I Love You, Op.41 No.3
Haydn (Various) - String Quartet No.77 in C Major, Op. 76 No.3 Emperor II. Poco Adagio cantabile
Mendelssohn (Jenö Jando) - Song Without Words in E Major, Op.19 No.1
Mendelssohn (Jenö Jando) - Song Without Words The Venetian Gondola
Mendelssohn (Jenö Jando) - Spring Song, Op.62 No.6
Mozart (Béla Kovács) - Clarinet Concerto, K.622 II. Adagio,
Mozart (Hans Friedrich) - Concerto for Flute, Harp and Orchestra, K. 299 II. Andantino
Mozart (Various) - Serenade in E Flat, K. 375 Menuetto
Mozart (Various) - Serenade No. 13 in G Major, K. 525, Eine kleine Nachtmusik II. Romance Andante
Mozart (Various) - The Marriage of Figaro, K. 492 Cherubin's Song (instr)
Rubinstein (Jenö Jando) - Melody in F Op.3 No.1
Saint-Saëns (Miklos Perenyi) - Carnival of the Animals XIII.

The selections on this recording are great for some calm background music while you read. I also listen to it when I need to clear my mind of daily stresses so I can fall asleep. I've used it countless times since I purchased it, and even tho i am not a classical enthusiast, I really enjoy this!

It came up as a recommendation after I ordered another similar item. I like relaxing music and this is a good relaxation piece. Given the price, I am very happy.

It is hard to find great classical music which I don't already have in my collection. Even this had a number of tracks which duplicated music already in my collection. But the value was irresistable so I had to buy it.

I love to have instrumental music playing in the background while I am reading, as the music tends to block other environmental noises, and allows me to concentrate on the book in hand. The Kindle Fire has brought together for me the best of two worlds, 1) an e-reader, and 2) a music player, all in the same product.
This collection of Classical Music, is the most varied and comprehensive I have seen in a single collection. Not only is the music excellent quality, but for the price, it can't be beat. My problem with music while I'm reading, is that I get caught up in lyrics, if the music has any. For this reason, I love this collection, no lyrics, just music!!!!

Most of the classical pieces on this album make for a pleasant background music for reading or other activities where you may want some pleasing sounds in the background. All of the music is performed well, but there are a few of the classical pieces that I find a bit distracting while reading and that is the reason for the 4 star rating.

Classical music is different from popular "songs", and the throwing together of disparate bits and pieces of major classical works, without even telling us who the composer is, is not a good recipe. These "for the Reader" compilations might be inexpensive, but they are also "cheap", and I will not buy any other volumes.

This is the second mp3 version that I purchased of this kind and it's just as good as the first one. Yes, it is relaxing and good to read with it on in the background. The price was very nice, too, at $.99 for all those pieces. The sound is warm and not tinny. I like it very much and am very pleased with the purchase.
