Chill with Naxos
Relax with the perfect St. Valentine's gift, from us to you

Chill with Satie
This St. Valentine’s Day, do something different.  A card is soon thrown into the rubbish and flowers quickly die.  Give the one you fancy a bit of timeless romance, music that echoes through the ages.

Maybe you need a gift yourself? Or, perhaps, you have way too much to handle besides another silly holiday and what you really need is a moment to relax and enjoy some soothing sounds. 
This year, everyone wins!

Chill with Vivaldi

Holiday or not, everyone can use a respite from deadlines, cell phones, PDA-alarms and traffic jams. Several studies throughout the world suggest that classical music may be the answer to these modern-day stress triggers. Dr. Charles Kimble from Dayton University has discovered that people can change a bad mood to a good mood simply by listening to classical music.  Research also suggests that classical music reduces stress, anxiety, tension and even high blood pressure.  The positive benefits continue with clinical findings that point to not only a boost in intelligence but also heightened endorphin levels and an overall feeling of relaxation.

Chill with MozartThe Naxos Chill With … series combines world-class musicians and some of classical music’s most prominent composers.  Each CD entices the listener to kickback, relax, and just chill out.  These extraordinary compilations not only make the classics accessible, they also lend a calming pace to any mood.

Looking for the prelude to an intimate gathering or a candlelit dinner a deux?  Think Chill With Mozart.  A delightful mix of lilting woodwinds and soaring vocals, the carefully selected works lend an air of serenity and ease to any get-together.  Balance Magazine raves about the disc, “Chill with Mozart on the Naxos label has a great collection of tracks. The very first made me slump down on the settee, put my feet up and listen. There’s a choice of piano, flute, harp, plus the Benedictus from his Requiem. All in all a great CD to have to hand when you really want to chill out.”

Chill with Rachmaniov
Consider Naxos’ other offerings; Chill With Rachmaninov is a quiet night at home or a secluded getaway. Surrender to classic melodies as you let the sublime rhapsodies and sonatas whisk away stress.  You’ll delight in recognisable pieces as well as discover little-known gems in this warm assemblage.  The dreamy sounds of Chill With Satie blends harp, guitar and piano into a luxurious soundscape worthy of the tranquil dawn or a misty evening stroll.  His Trois Gymnopedies are sure to become favourites to new listeners. 

Tchaikovsky, Brahms, Handel, Bach, Chopin, Vivaldi, and Adagio Chillout complete the series with more beautiful and transcendent themes from the great composers.*  Whichever collection you choose, each is sure to transport you to a realm of relaxation.
