A must listening book for both adults and children, especially for school children. It is easy to be followed with very enjoyable music.
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.
