A must listening book for both adults and children, especially for school children. It is easy to be followed with very enjoyable music.
Avid listener - when I drive, do home chores, lie in the hammock under the tree...
Xtra light on facts, lots of music snippets and a little gossip about composers - this is a book to play to your kids. My 16 year old son will already find the slighly patronising tone irritating, so younger kids only! Personally I also dislike the strong American accent. Wasted my credits on this one... :(
Sorry I bought this one. It as interesting as listening to some one read an index. No comparasion to other music themed stories like "Beethoven Live Upstairs". Just a dull chronologic survey with music samples.
