AllMusic Review by

The "Baby Einstein" series features definitive pieces from major classical composers as performed by the Baby Einstein Music Box Orchestra. Representing the Baroque period is Baby Bach, which presents delicate, delightful performances of such pieces as "Minuet in G," "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," "2-Part Invention," and movements from Brandenburg Concerto as well as excerpts of Goldberg Variations. The orchestra's flutes, harps, synths, percussion, and, of course, music boxes offer plenty of musical colors that complement the complex nature of Baroque music perfectly while giving it a distinctly innocent, childlike feel. A charming album, Baby Bach offers many moods and sounds as well as a creative way to introduce very young children to these timeless melodies.
