Fifty Shades of Grey - The Classical Album

by Various Artists
Fifty Shades of Grey - The Classical Album by Various Artists
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Capitol Records
You know why you're here: You want another hit of the book. If not, you'd listen to Bach's Goldberg Variations in their entirety. But as a "That's What I Call Classical Music"-style sampler, this does the job, given the EMI catalog. Riccardo Muti knows his way around the Traviata prelude; the Tallis chestnut is grand; the "flower duet" from Lakme is archetypal. One thing this isn't is kinky, or brutalizing in any respect (would it have killed E.L. James to reference Stravinsky?). The good news for anyone starting with classical here is that there's a lot left to explore.
