Studies have shown that the development of a baby’s mind is aided by listening to Mozart or Bach in utero.
I figure, if that’s true, then Schumann, Mendelssohn, and Chopin will aid in emotional development, right? Of course right!
And so we do a little of both: Itzhak Perlman covers the Bach violin concertos, and I dust off my Romantic repertoire. (Poor little guy — his patience is probably seeing more development than anything else!)
