James ok

After reading your post it made me want to have a listen,i have just put in to Spotify (classical) and it came up with Classical Chillout,i bought this for my mother years ago and its very light and easy to get in to.Its sounding lush on my set up.Enjoy

Good stuff David - are you a classical music novice like me then?

Youre pretty much in the same boat as me then. I have a couple of Cinematic Orchestra CDs already - heard them somewhere and bought some of their stuff.

It's not so much the CDs you own as the range of music you hear or try, one way or another. The experience is key...it leads you onto other things. Do NOT be put off by purists going on about this or that recording, particularly when starting out.

Andrew Everard:If you have an internet radio, try the AVRO Klassiek stations from the Netherlands - good performances and excellent internet sound quality.

Thanks for the recommendation Andrew - I added the various AVRO stations to my Reciva account a while back and am impressed. Not only is there good sound quality the display also tells you what is playing (essential for a novice like me).
