Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a subdued selection of Mozart pieces geared for meditation. This collection has an impressive range, for a varied number of instruments and orchestra, including the softly cascading "Flute Concerto No. 1 in G Major" and the contemplative "Piano Concerto No. 2." Notable performers and conductors, such as the London Symphony Orchestra and violinist Arthur Grumiaux, give this an added dose of musical sophistication one might not necessarily expect in a meditation collection.
