AllMusic Review by

Advanced Brain Technologies' Music for Inspiration is part of their Sound Health Series, a collection of albums of classical music designed with the help of the Center for Psychoacoustic Research and performed by members of the Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble. As its title suggests, Music for Inspiration features an hour's worth of stimulating classical, romantic, and modern pieces by Christoph Von Gluck, Beethoven, Mozart, and other well-known composers; highlights include Satie's "Interlude From Gymnopedie #1," Elgar's "Allegretto From Serenade for Strings," and Gershwin's "Lullaby." The intimate performances by the Arcangelos Chamber Ensemble magnify the lively properties of the music and are also a nice change from other classical lifestyle collections, which tend to focus on orchestral renditions. Music for Inspiration is an ideal collection for someone looking for thoughtful, subtle classical music as a backdrop for studying, thinking, or creative expression.
