Meditation Moods

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
If the main point of meditating is to clear the mind of all thoughts, then why would anyone listen to a highly varied classical compilation during meditation, especially one filled with tuneful pieces for flute that tend to stick in the memory rather tenaciously?

If the main point of meditating is to clear the mind of all thoughts, then why would anyone listen to a highly varied classical compilation during meditation, especially one filled with tuneful pieces for flute that tend to stick in the memory rather tenaciously? The producers at Berlin Classics seem to think that some people will enjoy playing Meditation Moods during reflective moments, but the selections on this CD are really more appropriate for casual activities or "chilling out" than for serious contemplation. The pieces and excerpts from larger works of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern eras on this disc are quite varied in styles, moods, and tempos, and it would take a yogi of superior mental powers to resist the appealing mix of chamber pieces and concertos featuring the effervescent flute. The performances by flutists Eckart Haupt, Werner Tast, and Johannes Walter are quite lively and engaging, and they are accompanied by a variety of keyboards, small ensembles, and orchestras in these bright-sounding recordings from Edel Classics' backlist. Indeed, this album seems to be much more successful as a budget sampler than as an album designed for profound spiritual exercises, so it is really only recommended as background music for reading or relaxation, but not devout meditation.
