5.0 out of 5 stars Tentative Composer Listing January 12, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As with all of Amazon's classical compilation collections of minimal cost, the recordings are of seemingly high quality with an absence of a feeling that they may be second rate. However, often the collections with multiple composers lack any note of the composer, as is the case with this collection.

Having benefited from the efforts of others who have posted the composers for other collections, this feeble attempt at identifying the composer and the entire composition is offered. There may be some misidentifications and corrections are appreciated.

The most uncertain attribution is the final selection on disc 2 which is identified only as "Minuet in G." One immediately thinks of Bach, but this is definitely not his widely available and played Minuet in G. On further search one finds many Minuet in G's by various composers, but the one by Mozart found played on a harpsichord and labeled K.-1 seems closest. If this is correct, then it was likely composed when Mozart was 7 or 8 years old. Verification of this would be helpful to all interested. Also, the Prelude in C is listed as derived from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier Book I, but again, this is far from certain.

Please forgive any errors in this admittedly uneducated and uniformed attempt.

3.0 out of 5 stars . . . not the most relaxing . . . December 28, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Contrary to its title, this collection misses the mark a bit. While the standard "relaxation" fare is present (Albinoni's Adagio, Bach's Air on a G String), as well as a few surprises (Holst's "Venus" from The Planets), there are far too many sprightly, light piano pieces to qualify this as a set of serenity. Try instead Winter Dreams in the Nightmoods series -- mostly Tchaikovsky, Grieg, and Sibelius, but way more consistent in mood.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! December 25, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Very nice calming songs for the home and during the winter time. I very much enjoyed most of the songs with a few exceptions.

I love classical and this had a great sample of various styles and different choices!

I have it on my cloud and it can be accessed easily to my iphone, ipod, tablet, or even ps3. Very nice - check it out!

I have no idea why the rating was so low or why the other reviewer decided they would complain for software reasons as I have no issue downloading these to my computer and they are lovely! Enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly beautiful choices
I'd say this was perhaps the most beautiful choices rather than the most relaxing. Although it is relaxing I found the choices to go beyond that. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars relax and enjoy
Finally a collection of music that does not just focus on one particular instrument or another, (nothing like an album that is filled with 2 hours of pan flute).
