AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

Readers' Digest's Signature Series: Romantic Piano collects 14 evocative piano instrumentals, including "Somewhere, My Love (Lara's Theme from "Doctor Zhivago")," "Stardust," and "Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing." Tracks such as "An Affair to Remember (Our Love Affair)" and "Stairway to the Stars" have a somewhat dated sound, but this isn't necessarily a bad thing, depending on whether or not you have a taste for '60s and '70s-era easy listening. "Have I Told You Lately," "Laura," and "Blue Moon" are some of the other highlights from this collection, which offers pleasant, if somewhat kitschy, mood music.
