The two works on this CD that are most known are The Magic Flute Overture, which is filled with brilliance from measure one to the end, and the opening piece to the movie Amadeus, the G Minor Symphony. These two pieces are superb but just because they are more known, doesn't mean they are better than the rest of the works on this CD.
The Sonata in D Major for two pianos is incredibly brilliant. The first piano holds the main melody while the second piano mimicks it, and then a huge crescendo and BOOM! It is all over the place! (My father and I are both Pianists, and we both specialize in Mozart piano concertos and sonatas.) This piece is wonderful to listen to, and I plan to learn it. The three piano concertos are also spectacular and the Jupiter Finale is superb. There isn't a piece on this CD I can honestly say is even close to okay, they are all exceptionally good. I suggest buying this CD to add to your mozart collection.

"You'll come for the Magic Flute Overture -- you'll stay for some of the other pieces." This CD, despite its "all-star" selection of repertoire, is not the favorite among my growing Mozart collection. Nevertheless, it still holds a reasonably high position among my CD playlist. High enough that I can put it on as background music when I'm working, but I cannot stand to listen to the whole thing when my mind wants to concentrate more on the music.
Blasphemy, you say? Well, I enjoyed all the tracks equally at first, but as I collected more Mozart CDs and became more acquainted with his style, some of the tracks on this album grew weary from repeated playing. The movements from the Two-Piano Sonata, the Haffner Symphony, the Wind Serenade, and the "other" G minor Symphony (track 7) were the first to start grating on my ears. These are perhaps the "bottom of the barrel" on the CD -- melodic tracks that serve as a good introduction to Mozart's style, but are certainly not his greatest works. However, most of the other tracks are solid material that you can listen to again and again. The Magic Flute Overture (which I mentioned earlier) is the star selection of this album; it's a true masterpiece which benefits from a spirited performance. The selections from the Piano Concertos are also my personal favorites, and no-one can resist the triumphant Finale from the Jupiter Symphony.
But is it really "for your mind"? Well, if you think that you can gain several IQ points (or a few more A's on your report card) by simply listening to this CD, think again. Mozart won't make you smarter. Hard work and study will.

I use this CD with a special needs student that I work with at school and she just loves the music and it seems to stimulate her for the day's tasks. She is nonverbal but is certainly able to give a reaction when she hears this music. I see improvements in her attitude to work when she sees the CD. It is very worthwhile to have in the classroom especially for this student. I enjoy the music as well and look forward to the time when we play it. Excellent CD.

I absolutely loved this cd. It is a wonderful collection of songs, most of them new to me. I have to say that without a doubt track number 5 is the hands down best of all of them. The clarity of these pieces is astounding. I highly reccommend it.

I started listening to this when I had to cram for an exam the other day. I couldn't stop listening to it, and when it came time for the test, I wish my professor could have let me listen to it while I was taking the test!
All the pieces are upbeat, while at the same time not distracting.

In Mozart for Your Mind, the best of Mozart's interpreters, giants such as Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, Sir Colin Davis and the London Symphony Orchestra, Mitsuko Uchida and Jeffrey Tate, and John Eliot Gardener and the English Baroque Soloists, create a fiery and spirited playlist of some of Mozart's most exciting contributions to the classical repertoire. While you may be familiar with some of the pieces, there are some surprises here that will only help you cement a love, respect, and admiration for the genius that was Mozart.

Mozart For Your Mind
Very melodic and nice. Music has been proven to stimulate brain activity, so it seems to be a "no brainer" (forgive the pun) to play this type of music around children and babies.

My daughter likes to do her school work with music on in the background, but too often she is singing and dancing along with it.

I wanted her to still be able to have the background noise, but not something she will necessarily want to dance to.

This is a great choice for helping her to be able to concentrate on her studies.
