Baby Needs More Mozart
Hear Now The Magic! Mozart — flute, piano, clarinet, and strings
Mozart, master of reflection, architect of joy.
Who Better to touch, within us all, the child we once were
And the Child we might be, even now.
Listen Well: you may hear them singing together. — John Stone, M.D. (Cardiologist and Poet)
Baby Needs MORE Mozart is a sequel to the popular Baby Needs Mozart. We have designed this program with gradations in pacing, so that Baby Needs MORE Mozart can provide a gentle musical bridge between play time and quiet time. Beginning with a playful tune from The Magic Flute, the music settles into a moderate pace, gradually relaxing into the calm of Mozart’s great Adagios — a series of masterpieces considered to be some of the loveliest music his genius ever produced.
