I found this to be a good quality CD with several different composers. The Baroque pieces on it are nice. I mainly purchased it because of the well-known Albinoni piece that I like also. It was pleasant seeing that 2010 Olympic skating couple from China use a Albinoni piece in their skating yesterday as I watched them on TV take the gold, and I wondered how they could skate to such a difficult, but beautiful piece. I find that many CD compilations of different composers are quite good, though sometimes the conductor or orchestra can make a difference in a piece--it sometimes is good to compare and contrast. I found that pianist Barenboim's interpretation of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" is wonderful on the EMI classic.
