Beethoven for Relaxation There are many more selections which RCA Victor could have included on this CD, but then there would have been more CD's in this album, and therefore the price would have been higher too. Beethoven for Relaxation For one CD, RCA Victor did an excellent job of selecting relaxing compositions of Beethoven. Beethoven for Relaxation There is also an interesting piece inside the cover explaining the relationship between Beethoven's choice of tempo and how relaxing the selection is. Beethoven for Relaxation All of the selections are very well performed. If you like to relax or even if you just like Beethoven, this CD is a great addition to your collection!
