Little Listeners Review
"The pianos sound different in the 4 disks. Some sound like harpsichord pianos and some sound more like grand pianos. It is amazing that the cello in the recording is over 400 years old!" "It sounds like it never repeats." "I don't think Beethoven would believe that his music would be played 300 years later." Coleman age 11 "I like to draw pictures while listening to this music. I think Beethoven had a good imagination. I can't describe how much I like this music!" Gabe age 8 "I think Beethoven was thinking about butterflies when he was writing this music." Henry age 6 Listening to Pianos and Cellos is quite a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. We took some time to rest and really hear the different pianos that are featured in the cd's. The arrangements are beautiful and the expertise of the players made listening very enjoyable. We were able to pick out subtle differences in the piano sounds and appreciate the historical accuracy of the arrangements. After focused listening, we let the music be our background for the school day and WOW, we were calm and able to accomplish a lot! I guess music really does calm the savage beast! Mom

beethoven!
Iím definitely no expert on classical music, sometimes I feel like I donít even know the first place to begin. When I put the first disc of Beethoven past and present in, I didnít need to know anything, I just knew that I loved it. Itís such beautiful and relaxing music, very easy and enjoyable to listen to. Itís great listening to both the modern and period instruments. I thought this was a really interesting and engaging way of playing music. I really could listen to this ALL day long, and I practically can, since itís 4 discs of bliss!! I feel like this is a great place for beginners to start their classical collection, while at the same time, it is also great for the more experienced classical listener because of the use of period instruments.
