AllMusic Review by

Presto! World's Fastest Classics contains a slection of excerpts from some of the fastest pieces in classical music, including the finale from Beethoven's seventh symphony, "Mercury" from Holst's The Planets, the "Infernal Dance" from Stravinsky's The Firebird, "Trepak" from The Nutcracker and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries. It's an entertaining collection, especially for rock fans, but anyone serious about classical music will find the collection fairly useless.
