Notes and Editorial Reviews
An introduction to the music and instruments of the classical orchestra!
Narrated by Sir Peter Ustinov, this award-winning program features twenty-six excerpts from the classical repertoire plus an original theme performed by the Toronto Philharmonia Orchestra, all carefully selected to be appealing to the young listener. Each excerpt is used to illustrate musical concepts of the sound of a particular instrument.
Colorful, imaginative, and technically accurate visuals are derived from the book illustrations by noted children’s illustrator Alan Daniel.
This enhanced DVD edition of one of NewSound/Allegro’s all-time best-selling videos includes full the French version and bonus “Bring on the Brass”
