Naxos' Chill with Mozart presents 11 of the composer's most relaxing compositions, including Serenade No. 10 in B Flat, Flute Quartet in A, K.298: Andante, Serenade No. 4 in D, K.203: Andante, and Sinfonia Concertante in E Flat, K.297b: Andantino Con Variazioni. While the album's concept is simple, it features pieces from Mozart that aren't necessarily among his major works, and it alternates between large and small-scale compositions, as well as strictly orchestral pieces and vocal ones, all of which give it an unexpected amount of depth and diversity. Così Fan Tutte: Soave Sia il Vento and Concerto in C for Flute & Harp, K.299: Andantino are among the other highlights of this collection. It may not be the only Mozart collection you'll ever need, but Chill with Mozart is still a pleasant and soothing one to have around.
