Classical music for optimum calm-from Dr. Andrew Weil's Music for Self-Healing series.
Full Description

Legendary composers like Beethoven, Bach, and Chopin instinctively understood the profound effect that music can have on our emotions and physical bodies. Now, bestselling author and physician Dr. Andrew Weil has joined with producer and sound researcher Joshua Leeds to bring you Dr. Andrew Weil's Music for Self-Healing Series, classical music for promoting good health.

With Relax and De-Stress, the first CD of this new series, listeners will enjoy a selection of soothing classical music, scientifically selected and performed to reduce physical tension, dispel anxiety, and create inner calm. The award-winning players of the Apollo Chamber Ensemble perform each piece on Relax and De-Stress with the guidance of the sound-healing research of Dr. Weil and Joshua Leeds.

Through subtle rearrangement and emphasis on the underlying psychoacoustic harmonics embedded in the music, these renowned musicians draw out each composition's innate healing potential. Masterpieces such as Debussy's "Reverie" and Vivaldi's "Winter" movement are presented in a specific order on the CD, easing the listener with each track into a deeper state of stress-free tranquility. Relax and De-Stress is the perfect choice for listeners who wish to slow down from a hard day's work, prepare for a good night's sleep, or simply unwind with some of the greatest work from classical composers.

Review for Relax and De-Stress

I was disappointed with this CD. I did not find it particularly relaxing compared to other CDs of this type. Also, I was acquainted with most of these classical music selections. Unlike improvisations on classical themes, which can be very good, these rearrangements were musically flat and uninteresting. In fact, I couldn't listen to them, knowing how they would usually sound in their unaltered form. I think that accentuating the "psychoacoustics" destroyed the musicality, at least for me.
