Baby Needs BeethovenBaby Needs Beethoven

Beethoven wrote music for the ages — all ages.
And he would have applauded this glorious collection that summons up the forest, the quiet brook, the cuckoo after the storm:
Big-Time, yet soothing, pieces, just right for delicate ears.
(May also prove useful for restless parents)” — John Stone, M.D. (Cardiologist and Poet)

A vivid popular image of Beethoven is the master shaking his fist at the heavens, but in actual fact no one in the history of Western music has better expressed utter joy or deep repose. This program of gentle music by one of the greatest masters of all time is meant to enable young ears and spirits to experience those enduring qualities.

15 all-instrumental tracks, including Für Elise, 6 Bagatelles from Op. 119; Symphony No. 6 Pastorale — “Scene by Brook” and “Shepherd’s Song”; and music from the Septet for Strings and Winds, Op. 20, Quintet for Piano and Winds, Op. 16, Symphony No. 1, String Quartet, Op. 18 No. 3.

Artists include Carol Rosenberger, Gerard Schwarz, Allan Vogel, David Shifrin, Robin Graham, Ken Munday. Ensembles include Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, New York and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestras, Orford String Quartet.
