My father is a classical music aficionado. Now 86, he has built up a formidable classical collection on Spotify. Some of his lifelong favorites have become my favorites too.
Dad and I worked together to create this web page of peaceful classical music listening links. These get two-thumbs-up ratings from both of us. If you are not familiar with classical music, this page can provde a gentle introduction. Enjoy!
