4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money
We purchased this shortly after a TV programme suggested that babies and children who listen to Mozart have a higher probability of being good at maths! Whether or not that is true I don't know. But my baby daughter seems to enjoy listening to it especially when she is in her bouncer. I don't normally listen to classical music...but I must admit that having the album on...

This review is from: The Best of Mozart (Audio CD)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, 1756-1791, Austrian.

"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius". (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart).

This Naxos CD is aimed at the beginner or occasional classical music listener and aims to provide a cross section of the entire works of Mozart on a single CD of around one hour duration. It's difficult of course to achieve a satisfactory representation of a composer's lifetime achievements in such short time, but this CD does achieve its aim in that it offers an affordable introduction to Mozart which may enable the listener to either pursue these works further, or simply to collect the entire Naxos `Best Of' range.

If the intention is to collect the series it will provide a good, although slightly abbreviated, library of classical music. Those requiring further listening are helped by the sleeve notes which give recommended further listening (all Naxos label CD's of course!).

It should be noted that the Naxos 2CD `Very Best Of' releases offer slightly better value than the single CD versions in this `Best Of' series.

That said, this is a good introduction to classical music for those on a careful budget.

The complete Naxos `Best Of' series (those indicated* also have `Very Best Of' releases):

Bach*, Bartok, Beethoven*, Berlioz, Bizet, Brahms, Chopin*, Debussy*, Dvorak*, Elgar*, Faure, Gershwin, Glazunov, Grieg*, Handel*, Haydn, Liszt, Lutoslawski, Mendelsshon, Mozart*, Paganini, Prokofiev, Puccini*, Rachmaninov*, Ravel*, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, Saint-Saens, Schubert, Schumann, Satie*, Shostakovich*, Sibelius*, Strauss (Johann) II*, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky*, Verdi*, Vivaldi*, Wagner, Weber.

This review is from: The Best of Mozart (Audio CD)
We purchased this shortly after a TV programme suggested that babies and children who listen to Mozart have a higher probability of being good at maths! Whether or not that is true I don't know. But my baby daughter seems to enjoy listening to it especially when she is in her bouncer. I don't normally listen to classical music...but I must admit that having the album on in the background is very relaxing. I recognise about 3 of the tracks - the first being the most famous. For the price, and as a "non-classical music lover" - I think this is excellent value for money.
