AllMusic Review by

Keyboard-artist Gordon Jeffries has assembled these classical themes and arranged them to emphasize the melodic beauty. The music is blended with nature sounds, and the tempos have been slowed to a perfect rate, with resonant timbres and softened crescendos for maximum relaxation. Digital sampling technology puts an ensemble of sounds in the hands of one composer, as Jeffries's performances give the feeling of an entire orchestra, set in the great outdoors. He selects two composers for each of the releases, as shown below. The four-title series is available as a four-pack cassette set or individually on Cassette or CD. Four Volumes: Chopin/Dvorak, Mozart/Beethoven, Satie/Bach, and Vivaldi/Debussy
