Album: The 99 Most Essential Pieces of the Romantic Era
Rating: 3.5/5
A download-only release from X5 Music Group, leading licensers of digital media in Europe, the somewhat prosaically titled 99 Most Essential Pieces of the Romantic Era delivers what it says on the tin: a sweeping survey of the Romantic classical era from a broad range of composers as interpreted by a wide assortment of notable and minor orchestras, string quartets, and soloists. Representing great value for the money, the entire album -- delivered as MP3 files -- averages below five cents per song. And if the delivery medium and sound quality leave something to be desired for true audiophiles, it does provide a great entry point for neophytes and more casual listener Allmusic.com
