5.0 out of 5 stars Non-pharmaceutical stress reliever October 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
There are many recordings designed for contemplation, to provide an oasis of serenity in a noisy world. Many are recorded by pickup orchestras sight-reading under the direction of a house conductor. This recording features the New York Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Leonard Bernstein. Each and every segment, from the brief barcarolle from Offenbach's Gaité Parisienne and the Children's Prayer from Humperdinck's Hänsel und Gretel to the nearly 10 minutes of Barber's Adagio for Strings, is done with all the resources of a great orchestra under a great conductor. I have turned to this CD for years now whenever I really need to calm down, and it never fails me. Do note that it's titled Nocturne, which means that all 14 selections are slow and quiet, just under 73 minutes of musical peace and serenity. Of course if you want excitement, you're in the wrong place - try Bernstein's recording of a Mahler or Ives symphony. But if you're seeking a non-pharmaceutical stress reliever, you can't do better than this fine recording. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect "stressbuster" April 9, 2000
By Ingalls
Format:Audio CD
If you are looking for a CD containing very relaxing music for resting, reading, or sleeping, this is ideal. I bought this years ago on cassette and nearly wore it out. This CD contains soothing, slowly paced, beautiful classical music which is perfect for when you want to recharge your batteries. There is a "Nocturne 2" available also.

1.0 out of 5 stars How Do I Hate This? Let Me Count The Ways..... April 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
There are many soporific compilations out on all the major labels and most of the minor ones, too. If you avoid the blandness of Marriner on Philips, the slick emptiness of Karajan on DG and EMI, and the sight-reading of starving Eastern Europeans on the white box labels, you can do pretty well.

But above all, be sure to avoid this one. The performances are usually slack (without pulse, purpose or payoff) and always swollen and self-indulgent. It's interpretations like this that give Romanticism a bad name.

And though the New York Philharmonic plays very well, the recording quality is coarse and artificial, often combining overly close miking and chaotic reverberation. Volume Two is no better.

"Gee, I guess he didn't like it."

Keep looking.
