AllMusic Review by

The Baby Einstein series features definitive pieces from major classical composers as performed by the Baby Einstein Music Box Orchestra. Baby Beethoven represents the classical period, presenting delicate, delightful performances of such pieces as "Minuet in G," "Fur Elise, WoO 59," and "Symphony No. 5, Op. 67, 1st Movement." The orchestra's flutes, harps, synths, percussion, and, of course, music boxes provide an interesting contrast to the often dramatic nature of Beethoven's work. A charming album, Baby Beethoven offers many moods and sounds, as well as a creative way to introduce very young children to these timeless melodies.
