Overview

Decca's For Your Baby features classical pieces that suit a variety of settings and moods, from playful to restful, for babies and young children. Mozart's "Baby Steps (Allegro from Piano Sonata No. 16 in C major, K. 545 Sonata)" and Saint-Saëns' "Aquarium from The Carnival of the Animals" are on the livelier side, while Debussy's "Reverie," "Greensleeves," and, of course, "Brahms' Lullaby" and Mozart's "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star (Theme from 12 Variations in C major, K. 2)" all provide a soothing backdrop for naptime or other quiet activities. Pieces by Chopin, Schumann, Bach, and Humperdinck round out this album, which should appeal to parents and babies alike.
