    Classical music time!

    The 14 releases in EMI Classics' new digital compilation series The Greatest Classical Music Ever! offer a perfect introduction to classical music for all who are curious about it, but are not quite certain where to start. Each compilation contains carefully selected pieces from EMI's unmatched classical recording vault - one of the largest and most storied in the world - stretching back to 1899 and featuring composers from Bach and Beethoven to John Williams, as well as legendary artists including Maria Callas and Itzhak Perlman. The series will be available for download purchase from all major digital service providers.

    The albums are organized by various themes - moods, events, composers, artists, popular works, and so on - in order to provide a broad variety of entry points to classical newcomers. The series' flagship release, 50 Best Classical Hits, presents all of the must-have hits in one elegant package, and 50 Best Classical Music in the Movies pulls together the classical music heard in popular movies such as Star Wars, Titanic, Black Swan, 2001: A Space Odyssey and many more.

    The series' other 12 releases offer equally diverse collections, including popular wedding classics, songs for your newborn baby, and overviews of the most famous works by Mozart, Bach and Beethoven.

    The Greatest Classical Music Ever! provides the best recordings at the remarkable price of only $5.99 each, with most of the collections containing 50 tracks.

    While there's no shortage of classical compilations, The Greatest Classical Music Ever! aims to be the last word: providing the highest quality at the best price, so music fans can easily download the albums to their computers, iPods or smart phones and begin exploring the vast world of classical music.
