Mi primer libro de música clasica / Helsby, Chapman
A delightfully colorful introduction to classical music, now in the Spanish language, aimed to fire the imagination of young children aged 5-7 years. Readers are asked to think about the different places in which we might hear music, whether it is in a concert hall, or just on television. They are then introduced to a selection of famous composers including Mozart and Beethoven, and learn about each of the musical instrument families, from woodwind to percussion. Throughout the book children are referred to the accompanying online playlist so that they can hear examples as they read. Music on the online playlist includes Mozart’s Magic Flute, Williams’ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals, Holst’s Planets, Stravinsky’s Petrushka and Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf.
"There are people who, when they listen to classical music, think it is boring and turn down the volume or change the station. The appreciation of classical music requires a little bit of education, however, once it is known, it is possible to enjoy it like any other art." – Lilia O'Hara (Los Angeles Times en Español, San Diego Union-Tribune en Español)
