Notes and Editorial Reviews

This classical music compilation geared for expecting mothers is appropriately lighthearted and sweet, and intended to produce a state of mind--and body--that is ideal for a developing baby and an enhancement to the bond between mother and child. This particular group of Mozart pieces, performed by several renowned orchestras and ensembles, shows a fitting preference for delicately singing strings, such as the tranquil "String Quartet No. 12 In B-Flat - Adagio," and the soothing "Cassation (Final-Musik) In G - Adagio."
This disc contains both ADD and DDD recordings.
