Dinner Classics: The Italian Album

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
The Dinner Classics series from CBS flavors your main course with the rich tones of classical music. And while this edition of the set focuses on Italian food and composers, the music's universal appeal will accentuate your next dinner party, whether you're serving Chicken Parmesan or General's Chicken. The Italian Album features some of the country's greatest composers. Puccini's arias from "La bohème" and "Tosca" are here; other composers include Verdi, Mascagni, and Vivaldi. Accompanying the set, which runs just over 70 minutes, are relevant recipes from Martha Stewart.
