Now, I'm not talking about "favorites" per se, here, but what really are stress reducers (research bears me out). Mozart wins, hands down. and not just his piano music, but also his symphonies -- most notably the 40th -- and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.
The last two are recommended for relaxing migraine sufferers. and I can attest that altho I don't get migraines, and I get headaches rarely, Mozart removes them more rapidly than any over the counter medication.
Now, if I'm talking about my favorite Mozart, that would be the 4 horn concerti (surprise, surprise!
) and the 40th Symphony.
