I first heard about Maksim when I was randomly watching a YouTube video. This young 11 year old girl was rollerblading to the song "Exodus" and I thought the music was really epic for dance type of music. Yes, these are remixes of classical pieces, but I have to admit...they're not bad. If you don't think that classical music should be remixed then I don't recommend you pick up this CD because you will not enjoy it at all. Maksim is a wonderful pianist, however, and he should do something without all the beats. If you like classical music and want something fresh, go ahead. Pick it up.
