    I found this album after searching for In the Hall of the Mountain King by Peer Gynt Suite and i decided to grab the whole album! I have to say it’s marvelous!
  • Just for one song

    I bought this album for just ride of the Valkyries and God the songs are good😄
  • Great music but one significant flaw!

    I am new to classical music and thought this would be a great collection to begin with - it is! My only complaint - and it is significant - is that you can't see who the composer is on iTunes, only the song title and the group or conductor or somebody.... Am I listening to Bach, Mozart, who??? It's very frustrating. I enjoy the music very much but the learning opportunity is greatly restricted by this!
  • Great mix but... What about the COMPOSERS?!!

    I am really pleased with this collection but I cannot believe that the album does not include the names if the composers! Absolutely unbelievable. I have to keep looking up who wrote each piece. That's just not cool.
  • Good music, but the piano's out of tune

    By Thepianomanlja
    All good songs, excellent selection, but something that really bugs me, as someone with perfect pitch, is their piano's just slightly out of tune. You can hear it real well in the beginning of Liebestraum. Other than that, all good things.

    If you go to iTunes on your computer, you can change song volumes by (I think) right clicking the song, then finding something about the song's information. Look through the tabs once it opens until you find the one that lets you change the song's volume (the actual song file will be made louder). If this isn't where you access it because I could be wrong, try selecting the song then looking through all of the File and Edit lists at the top of iTunes. If you can't find it try searching it on the Internet, but it is in fact possible to do in iTunes. Hope it works! Now for the album: Great collection!
