Notes & Reviews:

This collection of the most beautiful, familiar and popular classical melodies of all time, selected from the Marquis catalog of fine classical recordings, features virtuoso musicians.

From the evocative opening movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, featuring acclaimed pianist Stewart Goodyear, to a unique instrumental interpretation of Puccini's Humming Chorus from Madame Butterfly, these melodies appeal to both the classical collector and the casual listener.

The music has been carefully selected and programmed to provide a wonderful flowing musical experience of beauty, serenity and peace. Massenet's Meditation, Debussy's Claire de Lune and Bach's Air on a G String are timeless melodies played with warmth and tenderness.
