First, I'd like to say that I am a first-time visitor to your forum, and look forward to learning lots from this discourse!<BR> Now, as far as recommendations go for nice relaxing classical music, you have a couple choices: choose a cd specifically compiled for quiet music, a disc a label may release touting "Adagios" or "Relaxing". You'll likely get a mix of composers and pieces from different performers, and it'll do nicely for entertaining, I'm sure.<BR> If, however, you wish to seriously COLLECT relaxing music, you'll probably want to spend more time choosing specific discs by composer or artist, and that will involve a lot more research!! My feelings are that a lot of Chopin solo piano works well for your needs, as does many of Beethoven's slow movts in his sonatas. if we continue with B.. I find his symphonies nos. 4 and 8 would suit your tastes well. Lots of Mozart's work (divertimenti, sonatas, even symphonies...) are considered relaxing, as is a lot of Haydn. A good bet would be to ask your music retailer directly.
