I shy away from writing posts about the classical greats like Beethoven because I know nothing about them or the music and am very likely to embarrass myself. It’s like somebody who doesn’t follow baseball writing about Ruth or Aaron. It doesn’t make sense.
Here, at least according to Classical CD Guide, is a listing of the classical world’s Sgt. Pepper’s, The Wall and Tapestry.
In other words, it’s the ten disks a beginner should buy right off the bat. On the list are two Beethovens, Mozart, Bach, Brahms, Stravinsky, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Haydn and Bizet. Each links to a review. I’d figure there are a lot of thumbs-up.
