Notes & Reviews:

Sir Neville Marriner is one of the most versatile conductors of our time. Alongside recordings of Baroque and Classical repertoire, he has also made a name for himself as an interpreter of Romantic orchestral music, as this compilation shows: it contains popular works from the highly colorful French and Russian repertoire, including new discoveries like Tchaikovsky's Barcarole, which can certainly hold a candle to the famous work of the same name by Offenbach, and the Berceuse by opera composer Benjamin Godard.

EMI Classics continues its Red Line series with another collection of timeless classical pieces. This series features a wide variety of the most talented classical pieces of all time, written by such legendary artists as Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mozart. In addition, each CD features some of the most popular classical performers such as the Placido Domingo, Mikhail Pletnev and Kiri Te Kanawa. Every CD in the Red Line series features some of the most defining pieces in musical history.
