This is one of the longest running CD's in the collection of classical music for babies. Others contain music running half the time of this one. For the most part, the music is upbeat - I'd recommend it for "awake time." Entertaining for all ages and will be a favorite even after baby is grown. I listen to it while still pregnant and enjoy it over all others I've bought.

Although the CD covers a lot of Beethoven's music, the piano player in the first seven tracks is horrible. He or she keeps hitting the wrong notes. The tempo of the music overall is too fast and for some reason, they stopped "Ode to Joy" right in the middle. If you want a CD that features excellent musicians and Beethoven's music played the way it should be, don't buy this CD. Invest in the soundtrack from the movie, "Immortal Beloved".

There is lovely music on this CD. It's too bad that they had to package it under the pretense that it is somehow going to make your baby smarter. If this music helps you relax or creates a feeling of enjoyment then it is worth owning. The so called "Mozart Effect" collapses under scrutiny. Repeated efforts have been unable to reproduce most of it's effects. The ones that were reproduced only lasted for about 15 minutes after hearing the music. It was NEVER shown to have any effect what so ever on babies, it was tested on college students. If you are buying this CD to make your baby smarter I suggest buying a book and reading to them. If you are buying this CD to expose your baby to the rich culture of music, by all means....enjoy!

What do you get when you play brilliant music through a bad synthesizer? Buy this CD and find out. Your little prodigy's intellect will be engulfed in an annoying stream of cheap rinky-tink pianos, tooting synth-horns, and fake accordions. This is a cheap and annoying version of a great composer's work. Your young Einstein would be better off with a cheap harmonica.

This is a very pleasant CD to listen to, and I think the quality of the music is excellent. I enjoy listening to this with my 10 month old son, and we also listen to the radio and lots of modern music. I recently purchased 5 of the classical "Baby Einstein" CDs and I consider them to be inferior to this Beethoven for Babies CD. The Baby Einstein are very synthesized sounding and I think they are annoyingly mellow and kind of dopey. This Beethoven CD is beautiful. In fact I'm going to buy 1 or 2 more from this series.

It has been disproven that Classical music does anything more or less for a baby's development than any other kind of music. This series builds off people's hopes/desires to build a better baby by simply playing a CD. If only life were that easy! What makes matters worse is that the quality of the music on these "XXXXX for Babies" series CD is uniformly bad.
If you want to play Classical music for your baby, wonderful! But by all means go to the Classical Music section of Amazon and by the best possible recordings of the great composers and forget about these slick marketing gimmicks aimed a gullible (albiet lovingly so)parents-to-be.

My second son and I fell in love with this CD. It absolutely soothed him and helped bond on us as we listened together. We listened in the nursery and in the car. Now he's 2 and we still have favorites. I am getting a new copy now that I am expecting my 3rd son anyday. We absolutely over used our copy! And of course my son is now brilliant!

The actual reason I bought this cd is for "Fur Elise" but it turned out to be much more than I bargained for. Before road rage sets in while sitting in a traffic jam during rush hour, play this. If you need to take it easy and escape from your reality, play this. Need something to play at work that's not explicit or offensive, play this. Of course, it's not Beethoven himself, but if you need some quiet time, play this. Even while you read, you could play this. If you want some authenticity to your collection, get Beethoven for Babies.
