Baby Beethoven
(Baby Einstein $ Score:) Although all the hype about the learning power of classical music for young children is now being questioned, this CD (which should be subtitled "Light Beethoven") is quite lovely to listen to and likely to be fun for preschoolers to dance, paint, or dream to. Selected movements from Beethoven's sonatas and symphonies are played on piano, bassoon, and keyboard without too much of a synthesized sound.

The Mozart Effect, Vols.1-3

2005 Award
Beethovens Wig 2
(Rounder $12.98 Score:) Brava! Brava! Lighthearted LOL lyrics are set to classics by Bach, Schubert, Vivaldi, Strauss, Brahms, Grieg, and others. Richard Perlmutter has done it againólinking familiar music with witty ditties and each composer's name! Like the original Beethoven's Wig, PLATINUM AWARD '03, this is an amusing symphonic romp in the spirit of PDQ Bach for young audiences. (800) 768-6337.
