Alzheimer’s Association® Logo

Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, and every 66 seconds someone develops the disease. It is the costliest disease in the United States and takes a physical and emotional toll on caregivers.

Each recording in the PURPLE CLASSICS series has been taken from the Naxos Records catalog which is one of the largest and deepest classical music catalogs in the world. The result makes PURPLE CLASSICS the perfect foundation for a new classical music fan or for the seasoned listener.
