A wonderful selection of Bach’s all-time favorites, including Brandenburg Concerto No. 3, Sheep May Safely Graze, Air on the G String, Violin Concerto No. 1 and Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. Unlike some CDs meant for children that are dumbed down, this is real music played by a real string quartet and recorded in one of the greatest halls in the world, the Academy of Arts and Letters in NYC. The music starts out bright and upbeat and gradually becomes calmer toward the end. It is the perfect CD to play throughout the day, as background music at the office or when you or your little one are getting ready to go to sleep.
This wonderful CD is recorded by the Lumiere String Quartet, a quartet of some of the finest string players in New York City, with the addition of the beautiful-sounding Sato Moughalian on flute. It was recorded at the world-famous American Academy of Arts and Letters (the same space where Grammy-winning Emerson String Quartet, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and Richard Goode record) and the sound is so rich, warm and beautiful that you’ll want to enjoy this recording even when your baby’s asleep! We think your Baby’s Got Bach—and you will too!
Studies show that listening to classical music helps concentration and may also increase a baby's intelligence. Buy this CD for yourself, your child, or as the perfect Baby Shower gift.
