Piano music has been a typical part of the home environment ever since the proliferation of the modern piano and its precursors. For the past two to three centuries, piano music has probably been second only to the mother’s singing voice in accompanying babies into dreamland. Although in our time electronic entertainment has generally displaced playing the piano at home, the gift of soothing classical music can still be part of an infant’s early experience. This collection of gentle music is designed not only to lull but to give the very young a beautiful experience with some of the greatest classical music of all time.
