These 20 pieces are taken straight from the "100 Most Essential Pieces of Classical Music" CD, which itself cost less than ten dollars a few weeks ago. I believe there's now a "50 Most Essential Pieces..." that costs 12 dollars, so technically your better off purchasing that one if you want to get more bang for your buck. These pieces are, of course, not the best 20 pieces in the classical music world, but still, six dollars isn't bad for 20 pretty good pieces. Just don't draw too much attention to the price or they may hike it up.
I'll take that deal...
For the price I can't complain too loudly. However the composers names are not included with the music, so it's very hard to find and sort the music once it's in iTunes.
