Perfect Bedtime Music - Even for Kids!
on May 31, 2013
I love this CD, and I actually bought it for my 2-1/2-year-old grandson who has developed a fascination for photos of violins! I tried to mimic the sound of a violin while showing him pictures from Google, but thought it best to get the real deal, and chose this album. He carries the cover around and says, "Nicola pays veelin!" I put it on for him at nap-time at very low volume. I know it is not a child's toy, but this is truly why I bought it, and what luck for me, because it has become my own favorite. I think it is absolutely beautiful and one of the loveliest pieces is the theme from "Schindler's List," but you must hear the last piece - wow. I enjoyed reading the online bio of Nicola Benedetti, too. What a beautiful story, her great love for the violin since age four. She is left-handed, but from the beginning was taught to play with her right hand. She is so young (only 25) and yet so accomplished. If you enjoy violin music, or even if you just want to hear some soothing, lovely sounds, I would highly recommend this CD.
