Born in the year 1956. He studied composition at the Music Academy in

Ibolya, Rafael, Tibor, Lili
"GRAND MASTERPIECES FOR SMALL EARS" .
This series consists of 4 CDs,
which are particularly adjusted to the needs of babies. Many
grateful letters of mothers confirm the assistance and reassuring
effect of this music production.
In the first place we would like to address a few completely personal lines to you.
Our son Rafael had to be operated on his second day of life. A heavy
complicated intervention, which was, to our joy, accomplished successfully.
Day and night we where with him - and became part of the community of physicians, the tiny patients and the difficult life situation, which we were not prepared to. We were very impressed by the commitment of the physicians and parents equally, who all tried everything, which stood in their power to help the courageous small patients or improve their situation.
Outgoing from our good experiences in the field of the relaxation music for babies (whom we had used with our son in the intensive care unit and thereafter) we have considered to make a contribution, to the help for premature infants.
Due to as mentioned above the baby series "Grand masterpieces for
small ears" we were approached simultaneous by Mrs. Sabine Doerr,
(former 1. Chairman - Fruehchen
e.V.) and Mrs. Dr. Monika Noecker Ribaupierre (music therapist and European representative for premature children). With their co-initiative the project "The breath of a new life" was developed and created.
With the use of our conceived therapeutic music the results on premature infants are considerable. We endeavour to intensify our co-operation within our network because it is in the interest of these small patients.
The field tests accomplished by us are in an advanced stage and must be verified further scientifically.
We believe to be on a good way and are pleased, if we can help you and your family with the employment of our music. We are interested in your experiences, your physicians and, if they can show it, our small patients, whom it finally concerns.
Here we would like to thank sincerely Mr. Professor Dr. Christoph Vogtmann,
University Clinic Leipzig/ Germany, and the music therapist Dr. Monika Noecker
Ribaupierre, for their professional active support in such an important project.
With kind regards
Ibolya Kongo - Lévay and Tibor Lévay
