Various artists & performers from the vast ABC Classics catalogue

[ ABC Classics / 5 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Sunday 1 December 2019

Over six hours of gentle, calming classical music to help you unwind and de-stress.

Science has shown that music helps us to recharge, physically as well as emotionally. It can lower our blood pressure, calm a racing heart rate, boost our immune systems, clarify our thoughts, and help us sleep.

Music can, quite literally, heal us, body and mind.

Whether you're racing to beat a deadline, tired of the constant pressures of modern living, or simply curling up on the couch with your favourite book, this beautiful 5CD album will help you to relax, and breathe again.

Let yourself float away in the company of the great composers: Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, Saint-Saëns, Vivaldi, Vaughan Williams and much, much more, from beautiful ballets, gorgeous choral music, soothing piano and lush orchestral pieces.
