I would like to recommend a list of some of my favorite recording collections of various composers. I have been using these recordings for many years now as part of my daily listening, and these recordings are particularly helpful in several ways:
- For parents who seek to add more classical music to their children’s lives
- For teachers who want to introduce their students to various composers
- For students who want to study different styles of music
My compilation started with a gift of “Beethoven for Book Lovers,” and this lovely CD compilation recording has been my mainstay during my journaling, writing, and meditative moments. Then I discovered several other similar compilations, and that is the list that I share with you today.
Here is my list of suggested resources for adding more music to your daily lives:
- Beethoven for Book Lovers: lovely, quiet, contemplative music for comfortable moments
- Mozart at Midnight: good for preparing to fall asleep, calming
- Mozart for Meditation: quiet music for quiet times
- Mozart in the Morning: wake up music
- Brahms at Bedtime: lullaby music from the lullaby master
- Bach at Bedtime: soothing collection to rock you to sleep
- Rachmaninoff for Romance: passionate music, and who can resist Rachmaninov’s love caress?
- Debussy for Daydreaming: creativity nurtured
- Bach for Book Lovers: another soothing reading companion
- Brahms for Book Lovers: cozy and comfortable background for reading
- Tchaikovsky at Tea Time: favorite music from a favorite and familiar composer
- Liszt for Lovers: piano music about love and passion
- Bach for Breakfast: ease into the day with these lovely gems
- Beethoven for Your Beloved: romantic music from the beloved master
- Chopin and Champagne: piano music from the Romantic mood creator
- Mozart on the Menu: Mozart for your dinner time
- Beethoven at Bedtime: for those falling asleep moments at the end of the day
Again, these are all favorites of mine. These recordings advise us to “set your life to music,” and I have enjoyed doing that with these little collections. If you are looking for some ways to add classical music to your daily listening in an easy and pleasant way, then I recommend that you try out these lovely recording compilations. My students have enjoyed them over the years.
Until next time,
