Building Your Family's Classical Music Library - No.3

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a child prodigy and continued to be a musical marvel for the rest of his life. Mozart's Eine Kleine Nacht Musik ("eye-neh kline-ne nahkt moo-zeek") or "A Little Night Music" is one of his most charming and popular works. If someone wants to know what quintessential Mozart sounds like, this is it. I recommend the St. Martins in the Field's recording conducted by Sir Neville Mariner. Buy just Tr. 1 for the Allegro or first movement for 99-cents. But I also recommend listening to all the samples of the other tracks. Perhaps there will be another that you also like, and if you like all of them, you might want to spring for the entire album. If you have a good stereo system at home or are a real audiophile, if you want the entire album, I always advise purchasing the CD, as the sound quality is always better. But if you are like me sometimes, I want it now, so I order the MP3 download. HAPPY LISTENING!
