 Delux Chamber Music January 22, 2013 By George Buck (Fresno, CA) See All My Reviews "This collection has given me manny hours of pleasurable music. Normally I like to listen to a complete musical performance but this release gave me 6 discs averaging over 75 minutes per disc. I like the devision into various classical periods,ie: Baroque, Classical,Romantic etc.and to top it all off, performed excellently by well known artists and groups. Whoever selected the main themes for each piece did a surperb job. Overall, well done. and, you can't beat the price." Report Abuse
