Overview

Even though its name is Pure Classical Chillout, this four-disc collection works better as an overall classical primer than as music for relaxation. The set features many of classical music's best-known pieces, including Grieg's "Peer -- Gynt: Morning," Mozart's "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik -- 4th Mov: Allegro," Tchaikovsky's "Nutcracker: Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy," and Beethoven's "Fur Elise." Though the collection focuses on orchestral pieces, opera is represented by Verdi's "Rigoletto: La Donna E Mobile," and Puccini's "Madama Butterfly: Un Bel Di" and "Turandot -- Nessun Dorma -- (Calaf's Aria, Act 3)." Other highlights include Wagner's "Ride of the Walkyries," Rimsky-Korsakov's "Sabre Dance" and Khachaturian's "Gayenneh -- Sabre Dance." Pieces by Debussy, Boccherini, Strauss, Sibelius, Holst, Chopin, and Elgar, among others, make Pure Classical Chillout a surprisingly good general collection for casual classical music fans.
