Notes and Editorial Reviews

If it's true that prolonged exposure to Mozart can raise your child's SAT scores, then stashing this CD in the nursery may cut down on their therapy bills somewhere down the road. Grace is an ever-present element in Mozart's music, not just physical grace, but the metaphysical quality we call a state of grace. Both can be found in equal abundance throughout the selections contained in MOZART FOR MORNING MEDITATION.
In presenting this well-chosen collection of slow movements, Philips takes advantage of their phenomenal Mozart catalog and its glittering roster of performers, with names such as Arthur Grumiaux, Mitsuko Uchida, Neville Marriner and the Beaux Arts Trio leading the way. The program features the Adagio from the B flat Major
Read more Wind Serenade, the music that floored Salieri in "Amadeus," as well as several concerto movements, including the Andante from the Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola. All of the selected performances are among the finer ones available anywhere. Read less
