Product Description

Product Description

Useful as a soporific for nap time, The Ultimate Most Relaxing Classics for Kids in the Universe presents 29 excerpts and short pieces that, for the most part, have been selected to calm down even the most rambunctious youngster. Of course, if this double-disc collection is used merely to induce sleep, it's only important to know that most of the selections are softly played and quite gentle, and there are no sudden crescendos, loud crashes, or bombastic climaxes to wake anyone up. Except for two inappropriately perky tracks -- Leroy Anderson's The Waltzing Cat and Plink, Plank, Plunk, which really belong on a playtime compilation -- the rest of the pieces are serene classics that won't disturb anyone. However, if the quality of the music and the playing matter, then rest assured that Denon has chosen wisely from its extensive back catalog, and included fine renditions of great music by its leading artists, including pianist Yuji Takahashi, cellist J nos Starker, violinist Chee-Yun, I Solisti Italiani, the Philharmonia Orchestra, and several others. Levels are even and well-balanced throughout, so the sound varies little between solo piano tracks and orchestral performances, and the reproduction is uniformly clear and free of noise; however, just to be safe, play this album at a low volume for an uninterrupted siesta

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best on the mrket 16 May 2009
By glasto
Format:Audio CD
I sampled a number of classic CDs for children whilst looking for a present for a pregnant friend. Most of them contain lots of clashing chords, not great for getting a baby to sleep. This was the only one I found on which pretty much every track is genuinely calming.

My friend (and her new daughter) love the CD. I also liked it so much I bought myself a copy. I find it incredibly relaxing, and it helps my husband go to sleep!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper on Itunes... 2 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
Lovely music here, Just sampled it. BUT this CD sells Cheaper on itunes, so if your playing it through an ipod/ dock etc... it would be worth looking there first :)
Just got it now for my daughter (due in June) and I will start playing it to her now.
My father is a musician in the BBC symphony Orchestra and he used calming classics to get all 6 of his kids to sleep!
Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice! 21 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Amazon Verified Purchase
I am extremely picky as to what music my 2 and 3 year olds listen to. I need to be able to tolerate it myself. This is one of the best CDs they have. There are two discs and each daughter listens to one each night while going to bed. Very relaxing (for the most part - there is a bit about 2/3 in which is rather up-tempo but nothing too disturbing for my girls' bedtime). Contains nearly all of my favourite classical songs. Highly recommended.
