5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect For Its Intended Purpose June 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This double CD helps you relax. Period. It doesn't demand any more of you than to pop it in, sit (or lay) back and relax. You don't have to be a classical music expert of any sort to appreciate this, it isn't meant to be "listened" to. And I love it. I work at a rock/metal radio station and as much as I love that type of music, I own dozens of rock CDs, oftentimes it's the last thing I want to hear more of at home. Sometimes, complete silence is the best relaxation "technique" but in lieu of that, try "The Most Relaxing Piano Album in the World...Ever".

5.0 out of 5 stars Aesthetically Pleasing September 14, 2005
By Lina
Format:Audio CD
I simply love piano music. If you're looking to relax, enjoy a peaceful time, then you must check out this album. If you truly enjoy piano music, this album is by far one of the best you can purchase.

As it says....it is the "Most Relaxing Piano Album in the World...Ever..." Well, I haven't listened to all piano albums in the world, but I don't need to, this one is just perfect for me, and I think you will agree!

I would say the pianists' are extremely accomplished. At times, I would admit-it's a bit 'spine tingling'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean, gentle, and soothing piano music March 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I think it's very difficult to discover an entire CD (though I will admit I prefer disc 1) that reels through the emotions the piano can evoke. Don't worry, it's not all solo piano; there are orchestral accompaniments throughout, but this is one of the simplest, sweetest renditions of Clair de Lune I have heard. I had no problem with the correct labeling of the songs when I downloaded it to my computer, though. And I think this is a GREAT beginner's classical CD--that is, if you're not sure which composer you'd like to try something else from, you get a good variety. (No focusing on just baroque, thank you very much.) Happy Listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Relaxing!!! August 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These CDs are so much more than I expected! There are the classics you hear on all piano compilations, but also some additions that I've never heard before but really enjoyed. I don't hear background noise on any of the tracks--just pure & simple piano with the ocassional accompaniment of a few other instruments. If you're looking for something to get you to relax or to play during dinner, this is it. As a pianist, I enjoy it even more for those times when I'm not able to play the songs myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful piano music! August 14, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is simply an exquisite collection of beautiful piano pieces. I am very satisfied with this purchase. I can read while listening to this music-call it background music...maybe, but even when you're doing something else-the music is there...it does not intrude, but it doesn't get lost either. I am having a hard time explaining this. I wanted music to relax and enjoy. I got just that with this collection. I think it's a bargain and highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treasure October 18, 2010
By A Fan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wasn't expecting much from this CD - perhaps a laundry list of battle-fatigued pieces played by minor league pianists on medium grade pianos. Instead, it is neat list of beautiful pieces played by top notch pianists on wonderfully tuned pianos. Yes, it is relaxing and the price is reasonable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good collection: yes - Performances: so so February 17, 2012
By chewey
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD has very good choices of classical music pieces. However the performances are average. The recording is clean but overall does not have the wide dynamics that I'm used to with Deutsche Grammophon. If you have your favorite CD, DVD recordings of these selections already, perhaps you should stick with them.But if you need a good collection in two CDs, then this may be for you.
