Great collection of classics

I’ve never been a huge fan of classical music, but my wife loves it. I got this for her as a gift (along with Best Classics 100 Volume 2) and she loves it. In fact, as she listens to it, I’ve actually begun to appreciate some of it. It still would not be my first choice, but I do think it is a good way for someone who is not familiar with classical music to get a little taste that they can begin to appreciate more as time goes on.
