Product Description

I think this music is intended for adults, though the photo on the cover is of a sleeping baby. In any event, Schumann's work, Scenes From Childhood, Op. 15, featured here is more likely to bolt you out of bed than put you to sleep, as the mike is far too close to the piano being played by Cyprien Katsaris. Purcell's Adagio from The Indian Queen is magnificent, performed by John Elliott Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists. The Weird Award goes to triple harpist Tim Hobrough and lutenist Stephen Barber for their bizarre, spiky rendition of Minuets Nos. 4 and 5 from the Notebook of Anna Magdalena Bach. I would like to meet Bill Holland, producer of all these Atlantic Records classical compilations. He's programmed Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1 on three different CDs, billed alternately as sensuous, romantic, and now here: good for a long snooze. --Gwendolyn Freed

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for ages 0-101! June 7 2001
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
I am a trained classical musician, and father of 3. I generally steer away from most compilations, which generally consist of the same old classical top-40 stuff, in dumbed-down packaging. This CD is different- it is "smarted-up"! Still, it is totally accessible, and the selections are perfectly chosen to soothe the little ones. I like to play it while they are playing, to help them wind down towards nap time.
The selections, and the performances, are first rate. THere is a wide variety of styles, periods, and instrumental combinations. Some are off the beaten track, such as the Elgar. You will buy this for the baby, and use it for the baby, but will probably listen to it yourself for years to come!
This makes a great gift, much nicer than that "Music makes you smarter" junk. Music makes you musical, and that is its justification. This CD will foster music appreciation (and help at naptime too!).

I have given this CD to several new parents and have never received less than a rave review. Many of these folks are musicians by profession, and without fail they have been very enthusiastic about the soothing qualities of the music on the album. My own daughter who is 14 listens to this recording while going to sleep at night. I highly recommend this CD as a gift for new parents who will enjoy spending some quiet time with their babies!

5.0 out of 5 stars This collection is great for soothing babies Oct. 12 1998

I am not any kind of music expert, however I do know that this CD has lulled my baby (and myself!) into many peacful times of rest. Played softly, the music seemed to surround us with comfort and relaxing sensations. Of course we liked some tracks better than others, but I often left it on after my baby had fallen asleep to enjoy all the tracks not yet played. I am adding it to my list of must-have gifts for new parents.
