Here’s a great gift for the classical music lover in your life or for those who may be new to the genre (think children or even your grandchildren).
Contains all the familiar “hits” from the great masters including: William Tell Overture, Flight of the Bumblebee, The full Nutcracker Suite, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, Pomp & Circumstance, Spring from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and even Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. (See complete track listing below)
The songs that make up this treasury are full, uncut selections, performed by world renowned symphony orchestras like the London Symphony Orchestra and the National Philharmonic Orchestra. And the music editors at Reader’s Digest ensure this is a quality mix.
Classical Favorites makes a terrific introduction to the imaginative realm of classical music – but also makes a nice “go to” set to play on the stereo for a special dinner, social gathering or anytime your mood calls for powerful classical music.
Comes with a 48-page booklet with background info on each of the selections included on this 4-CD set.
