Classical Kids CDs

by Nicole Smith
(Sydney, NSW, Australia)

As a family we have "grown up" with these wonderful CDs. The children (and I) have really enjoyed listening to the creative stories intertwined with the wonderful music of each composer. We have often had them playing in the car while we drove to music lessons and other activities.

Now we all get a thrill when we recognise different pieces of music from each composer, as if greeting old friends.

The words of Mr Bach in "Mr Bach Comes to Call" sum up the experience of these CDs - "The more you learn, the more you know; the more you know, the more you appreciate; and the more you appreciate, the more you love." We love this music. We have stood in a wild storm with Beethoven, mourned with Mr Bach over the death of his beloved wife, been delighted as Tchaikovsky puts electricity into his music, winced as the Queen of the Night sings her incredibly high aria, and laughed as Vivaldi shows how a silly argument can be made into an opera.

A true delight. Highly recommended.
