Stargrass Records® is pleased to present Helen Marlais’ Classics for Babies, a collection of music designed to give babies their first taste of the classical tradition. The selections, performed by classical pianist and prolific educator Dr. Helen Marlais, feature some of music and history’s most famous composers, including Chopin, J.S. Bach, Mozart, Schubert, and Tchaikovsky.
This CD opens with the aptly named “Little Cradle Song” by Schumann and takes infants on a wonderful journey of discovery with soothing, gentle, and peaceful melodies that are ideal for their ears. At this impressionable time in their young lives, introducing babies to classical music while they sleep, eat, and play can be immensely helpful as they begin to explore their world. Classical music can be enjoyed at any stage of life, including infancy, but moms and dads will appreciate this collection as well after a frazzled day. Helen Marlais’ Classics for Babies is perfect for before naptime, during car trips, or for general relaxation and is something the whole family can enjoy together.
