You are ready to start a collection of classical music and composers and want to do some CD copying to back up your collection. CD copying is a good idea when you own a copy of CD and want an extra copy in case of loss or you want to make a mixed CD.
If you are interested in making a mix CD using classical CDs, here are some suggestions.
Using your CD copying equipment start with a mix of old favorites.
1. Bach- Brandenburg Concerto no. 5
2. Beethoven- Piano Concerto no. 5 and Symphonies no. 5 and 9
3. Bizet- Carmen Suites 1 and 2
4. Dvorak- Symphony no. 9 in E minor
5. Gershwin- Rhapsody in Blue
6. Greig- Piano Concerto in A minor
7. Handel- Messiah
8. Haydn- Symphony no. 94 in G major
9. Mendelssohn- Symphony no. 4 in A major
10.Mozart- Piano Concerto no. 2 in C minor
11.Rachmaninoff- Piano Concerto no. 2 in C minor
14.Rodrigo- Concierto de Aranjuez
15.Tchaikovsky- Symphony no. 6
17.Wagner- Flying Dutchman Overture
This would make a good mix of classical music and you can do this easily using your CD copying software.
You may also want to have some background information on composers. If you have CD copying software you will be able to find CDs that have that kind of information and make copies of them.
Dvorak started his musical training playing fiddle with his father. He had a wonderful childhood filled with country music and dance. He was not usual musician because he was mild mannered and didn’t seem to have emotional problems so many other composers faced. Dvorak had six children, raised pigeons and had simple tastes. He came to America in 1892 at age of 51 but only stayed three years. He wrote several symphonies and serenades.
