If you've been looking for the perfect music to play during relaxation, look no further. Sarah's tranquil, transporting improvisations on solo flute (also ideal for the little ones' bedtime) are based on her own compositions as well as traditional songs, including "All the Pretty Little Horses," "Brahms Lullaby" and "Alef Bais," a Yiddish alphabet song. From the exotic "Mozaique," inspired by a family trip to Israel when Sarah was seven, to the lighthearted "Magical Fish," the 10 tracks are evocative and enchanting. Visit www.sarahswersey.com.
