Overview

This aptly named album offers kiddies a delightful taste of Baroque music and pays homage to the water god with pieces that soothe, sparkle, and burble like a rippling woodland stream. Topping the classics are a variety of works from Handel, including eight selections from the "Water Music" Suites, rendered with playful whimsy using light timpani, woodwinds, horns, and a variety of keyboards , including a child's piano. The frothy tones of a harpsichord flavor Telemann's Concerto in A, while the frolicsome sounds of a recorder in the "Water Music" Bourée and castanets in the Harlequinade effervesce like a gentle sea spray. Beethoven's Contradances evoke visions of sunlight dancing on waves, while spirited renditions of a Mozart Nocturne and three vibrant selections from Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks create an atmosphere of relaxed inspiration. Rounding things out are an ethereal rendition of Debussy's La Mer and the gracefully flowing tones of Strauss's "Blue Danube" Waltz. Music lovers of all ages will enjoy this latest addition to the Baby Einstein family, but be forewarned -- despite the bubbly nature of much of the music, this serene blend of light classical tunes may leave parents as well as babies lapping gently on the shores of blissful slumber.
