AllMusic Review by

Another of X5's themed and downloadable playlists of classical music, this one offers a drive-by survey of the work of Schubert, which isn’t an easy thing to do since his catalog goes well over 900 composed works. Given the very affordable price here, though, it’s hard to imagine a better way to be introduced to the range of this guy, and there are songs, chamber pieces, symphonies, string quartets, masses, piano pieces, and more represented here, all well recorded and performed, and one can’t beat the price.
