The best sound from my classic collection, this magnificent composition is elegantly delivered with a soft, genius, and wholeheartly touching music plays. The conductor had directed the plays in such a way that makes me have to take deep breaths from controlling my emotion, still could not stop my tears from falling. Each overture is presented special: the majestic first overture, touching second, proudly third, and kingly fourth. The "Air" composition plays perfectly described a tender and loving heart. Added into the credit, Wolfgang Schulz who brilliantly played the flute in the "badinerie", one of the most adorable flute composition in music history.
