AllMusic Review by

Denon's The Most Uplifting Classics in the Universe features two discs' worth of light, soothing classical music, including Handel's Water Music, III, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, I. Allegro, and Vivaldi's Four Seasons, Spring, I. Allegro, all of which appear on the collection's first disc. The second disc features Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique," II. Allegro con Grazia and Beethoven's Sextet, III. Rondo -- Allegro, along with compositions by Strauss, Dvorak, and Bruckner. Throughout both discs, the album maintains a lively, lighthearted feel that's still refined enough to provide background music for a variety of occasions.
