Elgar: Enigma Variatons, Cockaigne Overture

These are performances of such outstanding authority that even the British have praised them as among the very best available. The Baltimore Symphony plays with the utmost conviction and enthusiasm--Cockaigne really rocks, and the finale of Enigma, with a very well balanced optional organ part thrown in, is a sonic showcase. In fact, Telarc's sound is the best this music has ever been offered, with an especially impressive deep bass extension. There are many fine recordings of the Enigma Variations, but this one deserves an honored place in your collection. --David Hurwitz

Baby Mozart

Baby Mozart Lowest new price: $11.86
Lowest used price: $1.48
Brand: Disney

No Description Available.Genre: ChildrensMedia Format: Compact DiskRating: Release Date: 7-MAY-2002

Of all the reasons you'll click the Add to Shopping Cart button next to Baby Einstein's Baby Mozart--and there are many--the best one is that playing this record for babies doesn't feel weird. Instead of subjecting tiny, tender ears to the kind of Mozart that can make adult classical fans wilt when tackled by a maestro who means business, this is Mozart lite, mixed and mastered by a dad, Bill Weisbach, who's clearly hung around for his share of crib-side cooing. The slightly tinny sound of a child's piano sweeps the sting out of Piano Sonata in B Flat's third movement; the first movement of Concerto for Flute and Harp in C floats by, birdlike; variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman" translate to a fancy-sounding (but adorable) "Twinkle, Twinkle"; and Piano Sonata in F's third movement snuggles so deeply into its childlike setting that if you close your eyes, you'll see a pastel parade of animals floating by overhead. Other pieces (more aptly called fragments, since only one track stretches beyond the three-minute mark), like Symphony No. 41's fourth movement, wander into more robust Mozart territory, but it's here the claims about classical music enhancing young kids' abstract reasoning skills and spatial intelligence crystallize. Babies strapped in for a roller coaster of sounds that gracefully dips, swerves, and high-jumps like this version, do have to process what they're hearing somehow (and a case could be made that the instruments Weisbach's chosen--the vibraphone, glockenspiel, and music box among them--make it more appealing for them to do so). Followers of Julie Aigner-Clark's Baby Einstein empire, many of whom opted out of the fan club once Disney bought the company in 2001, won't trip over a single Mickey Mouse-ified sound here. This is pure, plugged in, and muted Mozart, and if it doesn't make your baby smarter, it'll at least sound awfully sweet issuing from your nursery's speakers. --Tammy La Gorce

Baby Einstein: Baby Galileo

Baby Einstein: Baby Galileo Lowest new price: $9.99
Lowest used price: $3.13

What Baby Einstein gets better than anybody else in the crowded baby brain-booster category is how to make classical music sound appropriately infantile. "Re-orchestrating" is their term for the technique that so effectively replaces the vague mustiness of Mozart's powdery wig with fresh whiffs of Johnson & Johnson, and no doubt it causes a dust-up among classical-connoisseur parents, but for the rest of us it works brilliantly, this latest installment included. Galileo takes its inspiration from the moon and stars, thus its two-suite split: In "The Day Sky," Beethoven, Schubert, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky trot out cloudless symphonies and serenades, "Sleeping Beauty" among them, and "Night Sky" shines a light on Chopin, Strauss, Brahms, Debussy, and Dvorak for twinkly interpretations of "Claire de Lune," "Moonlight," and others. The masters may not be represented at their purest here, but they'll never reach purer ears. --Tammy La Gorce

Music For The Mozart Effect, Volume 1, Strengthen the Mind

Music For The Mozart Effect, Volume 1, Strengthen the Mind Lowest new price: $3.49
Lowest used price: $0.89


Volume I of the immensely popular Mozart Effect series of music attempts to do no less than "strengthen the mind." One thing is for certain: the music chosen on the disc by author and scholar Don Campbell--excerpts from Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 1; Violin Concerto, No. 3; Ein kleine nachtmusik; and others--includes some of the strongest pieces the composer wrote. Though the performers on this disc (Capella Istropolitana, Northern Chamber Orchestra, and violinist Takako Nishizaki) are far from world-class, this is still a delightful collection and one that--at least according to the liner notes--will increase your alertness and perhaps your IQ. Volume II features music for "rest and relaxation," while volume III will "unlock creative spirit." With music this entertaining, who can dispute these claims? --Jason Verlinde
