Classic 100 Feel Good - Highlights (4CD)

For more than 20 years, the Classic 100 has been one of the most anticipated events on the Australian classical music calendar: a chance for music-lovers across the country to nominate the music that means the most to them. This year's theme is ‘Feel Good’: the uplifting tunes that make you smile, the mood-boosting songs that get you through the day, and the music that soundtracks your life and soothes your soul.
