5.0 out of 5 stars 75 minutes of meditative music December 13, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The cello is almost always the instrument I turn to for relaxation. It meditates upon a deeper, slower spectrum of emotion than say, a harp or violin.
I put this CD to the ultimate test and took it to the hospital with me, to see if its music could counteract the threat and ultimate deployment of needles---and it was indeed much less painful to be poked while in a state of relaxation, as induced by these (mainly 19th century) compositions.
My two favorite selections from "Cello for Relaxation" are Camille Saint-SaŽns' "The Swan" from "Carnival of the Animals," and John Tavener's "Chant," which is an unaccompanied melody, "without barlines or meter, shaped as a palindrome." Steven Isserles performs as the cello soloist for both of these compositions.
In my continuing search for relaxation music, this CD now rates as number one. Its music was selected with a sensitivity to dynamics, and beautiful, adagio playing. Its musicality is superb and unobtrusively displayed, and allows the listener to meditate, or relax into much-needed sleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyday Cello March 22, 2004
By ALWA
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD solely based on the fact that I love the cello. I do not pretend to know classical music - I buy what I like to hear, and this CD exceeded my expectations. It is such a pleasure to listen to this disk; it is soothing and every track is worth it!

4.0 out of 5 stars soothing May 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's not a bad CD, although I believe there has got to be a better rendition of The Swan somewhere out there. The problem with this version is that the piano overwhelms the cello playing.

The rest of the CD is pretty nice and relaxing. Worth what I paid for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Way To Relax January 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Currently I'm enjoying this cello music while in the car, as it lessens the stress of traffic. It contains a variety of cello pieces that have beauty and grace. As a cellist I appreciate the supurb execution of each piece. This CD is everything I hoped it would be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect way to escape August 31, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I work nights and sleep during the day. My husband and 9 month old daughter can't very well tip toe through the house while I'm trying to sleep so I bought the CD hoping it would help drown out the noise from them and help lull me into a good day's sleep. I love it! I can't even make it through the first half of the first song before I'm sleeping like a Baby!! It is so nice to come home, light a candle or two and simply lay back and relaxe while the deep rich seductive tones of the chello becon me into dream land. I would recommend this to everyone...and pretty much have since I got it.

4.0 out of 5 stars a really nice soothing cello collection May 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I play this for my son when he is going to sleep and it is enjoyable for both of us. A few of the songs are a little "off" the purely soothing edge, but it's still very nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome January 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like listening to relaxing music when falling asleep if a lot is on my mind. I absolutely love this cd, it's so easy to fall asleep to and really calms my mind down if it's all ramped up and I want to get to sleep quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Compilation January 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This turned out to be a great compilation. I bought it because it was the only recording I could find of the Bruch Canzone and ended up liking the whole disc. The Bruch Canzone was outstanding.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing
OK, so I expected it to be YoYo Ma quality. And I expected a different arrangement for the pieces I knew. Doubt that I'll ever put this one on again to relax to.
