Very Good Condition


A Review:

I got this because I remembered my mother having an old Reader's Digest collection of classics on LP, and that was how I was initially exposed to classical music as a child. I have been thoroughly enjoying this collection. The pieces are of decent quality, and the pieces are arranged in a pleasing order and with reasonable volume, so I can just put the discs in and work. Good music to write by!! This one and Art of the Violin have been a great addition to my work day. Ah, and my daughter fell in love with it because she said one of the discs sounds like the music they used to use to accompany cartoons.
