    It's up to $7.99 now and here's "caveat emptor", as per one review on site:

    This is a fantastic deal, no question.

    Just consider:

    1)The performers are not of top rank - although they are perfectly adequate. Just not the best, so you aren't going to get a transcendent or particularly uniquely interesting performance.

    2) You don't hear complete works - just movements. This isn't much of a problem if you are just popping this into your iPod, and putting it on random play along with your Coldplay and Metallica.
    3)The excerpts are the ones you hear the most already, so if you are like me, the music isn't exactly fresh. But I am a bit of Classical Music Geek.

    If you want to get exposed to Mozart's repertoire, this a great way to do it - but use it as a sampler - find out what you really like, and then track down a better recording of it and then listen to the complete work.

    Life's too short to spend your time listening to mediocrity.

    Despite the above caveats, I am going to give this 5 stars, because the deal is just so spanking good.

    Hey, that's some good info. Just bought it, and, like you said, if anything catches my ear, I'll look into getting the complete work.

    Thanks!

    I've got this on my iPod. My new favorite is Concerto for Clarinet & Orchestra in A Major. Great value.
