This 53-CD set is more than the sum of its parts. While not all the performances and recordings are top-notch, the overall quality is very high and as a historical overview of a label known for its sonic as well as musical merits, it's full of treasures. The Mercury sound at its best is vivid and still sounds remarkable and many of these recordings - such as the marches, show tunes and orchestral showpieces conducted by Frederic Fennell - demonstrate this amply. But it's not all lollipops by any means.

A Voyage Through Classical Music - a collection for lovers of classical music. Excellent selection of orchestral, chamber and other music, including songs with piano, strings, brass and other instruments.
Liszt's works and his influence have great significance for the history of music. He was not only one of the most brilliant instrumental virtuosos of all time, but also one of the most distinguished piano teachers the world has ever known. All Chopin's waltzes are typical of the new piano style he created. Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony enchants the listener through its charming cheerfulness and the recollection of Italian sun.
Liszt composed 15 Hungarian Rhapsodies between 1851 and 1855 and another five works between 1879 and 1866. Verdi's Aida was commissioned by the Viceroy of Egypt for the celebrations for the opening of the Suez Canal in 1870. The Slavonic Dances are a cycle of eight dances of folk-dance character which Dvorak first wrote for piano duet, then published in his own orchestral version. Mendelssohn's Italian Symphony enchants the listener by means of its cheerfulness and the recollection of the Italian sun.
