Great for what it is
However Beethoven intended his movements to be heard along side one another, not pulled and listened to out of context. Nice for evening relaxation but give Beethoven the respect he deserves and get the full selections instead of the cuts. You’ll be glad you did.
This is a well done and comprehensive album of some of Beethoven's best known works. I would recommend it to anyone, including those interesting in trying out classical music for the first time or just trying to add more to their itunes library.
Excellent dinner music
If you want dinner music or music just to relax by, this is the album for you. I love Beethoven's music but many of his compositions are too intense for easy listening. This collection is the exception. You still get the great compositions of Beethoven but at an intensity level suitable for a dinner party. A winner.
