Notes and Editorial Reviews
BEST CLASSICS 100 offers an impressive assortment of well-known and beloved classical compositions grouped thematically across a six-disc set. The "Uplifting Classics" section promises excitement through a lineup that includes Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," Tchaikovsky's "1812" Overture, and Bach's Toccata in D Minor, among others. Elsewhere, "Relaxing Classics" presents serenely sublime works, notably Pachelbel's Canon in D Major, Albinoni's Adagio in G Minor, and the Andante movement of Mozart's "Elvira Madigan" Piano Concerto.
"Spiritual Classics" features masterpieces of faith and devotion, including Handel's "Hallelujah" Chorus and Franck's "Panis Angelicus," while Mascagni's Intermezzo from 'Cavalleria rusticana,' the "Fantasy" Overture from Tchaikovsky's 'Romeo and Juliet,' and Borodin's "Polovtsian Dances," along with many other crowd-pleasers, fall under the rubric of "Favourite Classics." The "Vocal Classics" segment overflows with beautiful arias, songs, and choruses magnificently sung by the likes of José Carreras, Maria Callas, Roberto Alagna, and Dame Janet Baker. It's no surprise that the performances are all of the highest quality imaginable, culled as they were from the vast EMI vaults. BEST CLASSICS 100 is a first-rate sampler loaded with well-chosen musical treasures.
