Classical Kids - Tchaikovsky Discovers America - Book & CD

Catalog: 1894502787

Price: $32.98

Description
Classical Kids Teacher's Notes include more than 100 facts, activities and thought-provoking questions to move beyond music into an integrated curriculum of social studies, creative writing, math, sciences and the other arts. The great composer Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky arrives in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall. It's all aboard for fun as two children join the composer on a musical journey to Niagara Falls. The children set the stage for the story to reveal much about Tchaikovsky -- his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. In the end, both the composer and the children discover something about courage -- and about themselves. This recording features more than 24 of Tchaikovsky's best-known and best-loved works including The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, the First Piano Concerto, String Serenade and 1812 Overture. Also included is a musical mosaic of well-known American music of the time, including ragtime, spirituals and popular folk classics. The award-winning Classical Kids series introduces children--and adults--to the joys of classical music. A dramatic story, a little bit of history and the world's best-loved classical music set the scene for these fun-filled musical adventures.
