My Wish List

Intro

"Classical music is inaccessible and difficult." It’s surprising how many people still believe the above statement to be true, so this new series from Chandos is not only welcome, it’s also very necessary.
I was lucky enough to stumble upon the wonderful world of the classics when I was a child, and I’ve often contemplated how much poorer my life would have been had I not done so. As you have taken the first step by buying this CD, I guarantee that you will share the delights of this epic journey of discovery. Each CD in the series features the orchestral music of a specific composer, with a selection of his ‘greatest hits’ played by top quality performers. It will give you a good flavour of the composer’s style, but you won’t find any nasty surprises – all the music is instantly accessible and appealing. The discs are beautifully presented, and very good value for money, too.

I sincerely hope this CD marks the start of your own lifelong passion for classical music.
