Notes and Editorial Reviews

Researchers at the University of California at Irvine found that scores on intelligence tests rose by an average of eight to nine points immediately after subjects listened to the music of Mozart. It has also been determined that music helps infants develop both physically and mentally. This recording is comprised of music by Mozart that may well assist in the development of young minds and bodies.
The recording features Mozart's music in stellar performances drawn from the Sony archives. From the boisterous overture to 'The Marriage of Figaro' to the gentle Andante from the Piano Concerto No. 21, the breathtaking spectrum of Mozart's music is presented for infants and adults. While the producers of the recording make no promises of
Read more increased IQ scores, there is no doubt that the music will delight all listeners. Featuring legendary performers like Glenn Gould, Pinchas Zukerman, and George Szell, this recording is also a great vehicle for sampling the master's music. Whether for infant, parent, or blissfully single adult, this is a glorious compilation. Read less
