    Hello there,
    I was wondering if you guys know any other type of relax and beautiful piece of piano or violin that you can post on here. I think it is beneficial and relaxing to listen to calming music while working or do paper work.

    I'll start with the one piano piece I am currently listening to.

    David Lanz- Cristofori's dream.
    The piece is very gentle and beautiful, especially at the middle part.

    It sounds very much like some of Chip Davis's "Mannheim Steamroller" pieces, although on his albums, they are usually "interludes" between more up-tempo pieces.

    This is the only similar one that I can immediately find on youtube:

    There are collections of these recordings, as well as ones including nature sounds.

    Try googling meditation music, calming music, and see what you can find.

    Always a fan of this piece for relaxing. Berceuse translates to lullaby, so that should fit in with the dream/sleep theme. For that matter, look up the Chopin Nocturnes while you're at it. icon_smile.gif

    I find Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto 1, both concentrational and relaxing. Hope this helps

    Beautiful! I can hear Adele-like lyrics being sung to this piece. Think I'll pen lyrics to this & try it out at open mike icon_smile.gif ......

    This one works for me - specially when there's reading involved.

    I have always loved the Berceuse... thanks so much for posting it. This is my favorite of the Nocturnes:
