The first volume of Famous Composers, written by Darren Henley and read by Marin Alsop, the American conductor, won a prestigious Audie in the US. Here, Henley and the Naxos AudioBooks team bring the combination of an entertaining but informative "life" and numerous musical selections to a further set of six composers: Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Rachmaninov, and contemporary artist John Williams.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
"The pleasantly voiced Marin Alsop once again acts as musical tour guide, giving historical context and sharing engaging bits of information...while also calling our attention to interesting, illustrative moments in the music. Though clearly designed for children, this engaging audio experience is educational for a wide audience." (AudioFile)

Excellent introduction to classical composers
A wonderful introduction to six classical composers. That it is read by Marin Alsop, one of the most prominent female composers, is a massive plus. For younger and older listeners alike.
