Einstein once said, "If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live in daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.... I get most joy in life out of music." I may not have the intelligence of Einstein, but I would like to experience the music that he loved to listen to. Thanks to Museum Music and the Museum of Natural History, I can do just that. Einstein: Music for the Mind is a collection of Einstein's favorite music. It includes works from Mozart, Schumann, Beethoven, Bach and other classical composers. This music will raise your mind up to another level. You might not turn into an Einstein, but you will certainly feel more educated and relaxed after listening to these great works. It's a wonderful collection of inspiring classical music.
There has long been evidence that listening to classical music helps with cerebral functioning, and if you're looking for evidence, you can seek no greater evidence than the words of Albert Einstein, one of the most famous "thinkers" in history! He has been quoted as saying, "If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician . . . I get most joy in life out of music." His mother was a pianist, and Einstein, himself, was a talented violinist. He began taking lessons at the age of six, and continued playing for the rest of his life, even giving benefit performances at Carnegie Hall! And thanks to Museum Music, a company that specializes in creating musical compilations to accompany exhibitions at museums, we now have an idea of what Einstein's playlist might have sounded like. Created in conjunction with the American Museum of Natural History's EINSTEIN exhibition, Einstein: Music of the Mind features recordings of the works of Einstein's favorite composers, including Mozart Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Vivaldi, and more. And, even more special, the recordings selected for the compilation were all made during Einstein's lifetime, and all prominently feature the violin. The recordings are beautiful, and it's incredible to think that they were quite possibly the exact recordings Einstein himself used to listen to! Overall, an enjoyable and fascinating compilation.
If ever Einstein had a profound influence on us, via his music, that influence is underscored in this compilation by Museum Music. Einstein's mind gave us monumental achievements, and "unparalleled" insights. But aside from his extraordinary brilliance, and mental permutations, Einstein's music was important to him. As with Sherlock Holmes, the violin was an intrinsic part of Einstein's daily vocabulary. He played, and even nicknamed his instrument "Lola", throughout his life. Music calmed, soothed, and stimulated his mind. It was his second passion, beside physics. The American Museum of Natural History identified many of Einstein's favorite classical passages, and compiled them herein for our listening pleasure. You can feel the grey cells browning as you turn it on! Well, maybe. Music is the background of our lives, and it's a delight to have this focus on such a brilliant mind. If this was the music of relativity, and produced the environment in which Einstein could "compose", so much the better. And better for us, who have benefited for so long from his stratospheric brilliance. Mozart, his favorite, and Bach, and Shubert must be thrilled that they contributed so much to Einstein's world. Now, we, too , can listen, appreciate, and perhaps even grow.
"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician . . . I get most joy in life out of music." These are the words of Albert Einstein. And this truly unique and wonderful compact disc vividly captures Einstein's sentiments. Created for the American Museum of Natural History, this CD contains a collection of the music that Albert Einstein loved, including works by Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms and other favorite composers of Einstein, with historical performances by such prominent violinists as Yehudi Menuhin, Frietz Kreisler and Jascha Heifitz. Each CD from the Museum collection focuses on a particular sound, and the melody of the violins on Music for the Mind will lull you into a tranquil state of relaxation.

How Do We Create A CD With Museum Music? The process is simple. First, our team of developers meets with representatives of your organization to fine tune concept ideas and outline the objectives of the project. Our researchers and music historians then compile a list of suggested tracks, in collaboration with you. Museum Music handles all music licensing and/or all production of original music required for the project. Our art department creates all design elements for the packaging and our writers working with you complete the liner notes. Once you give final approval, our production experts take over and, shortly thereafter, finished CDs are ready for shipment and sale.
How Long Does It Take? For a music CD, the production time averages 12 - 16 weeks from start to finish, depending on the size and nature of the project. But we have produced CDs in much shorter turnaround times to meet exhibit opening dates. We can design a production schedule to meet your needs and deadlines. Even on a rush basis!
