Not so Great content

"THE GREAT COMPOSERS is not so much about the composers as it is about pretentious filmmaking and mediocre choreography. Any historical information about the composers lives was barely touched upon. The sampling of music was very limited and any discussion of the actual music, music theory or the musical inspiration seemed pretty much non-existant.
The DVD could have been better described as an attempt by the production team to present a view of the many composers through interpretive dance and mood setting cinematography. I am sure that someone out there will enjoy this attempt but it is definately not my cup of tea . I expected something completely different...guess I've been spoiled by Ken Burns.
It was difficult to know what this series was about because of lack of accurate descriptions or reviews. I pretty much ordered the product with my fingers crossed. Hope this review helps you."

"These biographees are not what I expected. There not very acurate. There basicly a series of Choreograph dances which try to tell the composer's story. Much of the true biographee of each composers is lost. I would not recomend the purchase of these DVDs to anyone who is serious about learning about these great composers."
