Synopsis

Album Description
The award-winning Classical Kids series introduces children -- and adults -- to the joys of classical music. A dramatic story, a little bit of history and the world's best-loved classical music set the scene for these fun-filled musical adventures. Mr. Bach, a magic orchestra and boys choir surprise young Elizabeth as she practices at the piano. The series' premiere recording opens with the launch of Bach's music into space aboard the Voyager II spacecraft. Mr. Bach magically arrives and reminisces about his life and music; his twenty children, his time in jail and his devotion to the church. Not until the very end does he reveal the reason for his visit, "Every time my music is played... I am alive." More than 28 musical excerpts include Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Brandenburg Concerto #5, Air on the G-string, Flute Sonatas and Badinerie, Goldberg Variations, minuets and preludes, organ music and Cantata #78. Awards: American Library Association Notable Children's Recording, Parent's Choice Gold Award, Parent's Choice Classic Award (The Classical Kids Collection), Award of Excellence Film Advisory Board, Practical Home Schooling Reader Award Music Curriculum Category, Certified Platinum Recording (Canada) Also available from Classical Kids: Beethoven Lives Upstairs, Mozart's Magic Fantasy, Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery, Daydreams and Lullabies, Tchaikovsky Discovers America, Hallelujah Handel, Mozart's Magnificent Voyage

Entertaining
Mutterdrei | Lansing, MI | 05/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I loved this CD and so did my kids, 6 year olds. They learned a lot about Bach and his music. I hear them singing pieces written by Bach to themselves. I'd recommend this one to anyone."
Such a treat to listen to

"We got this cd when my daughter was 4 years old and we have not tired of listening to it after 3 years. We all love Mr Bach and of course we pronounce his name correctly.

The story really touched me as my Grandmother was a musician and was also a German speaker. Many of the things that Mr. Bach says in the story sound like her speaking again, although it has been 40 years since I have heard her voice.

I like the fact that the series has some very different story lines, but all really familiarize one with the composers music."

"We got this audio book series for our daughter when she was 8 years old. She is 12 now and she is still listening and loving those audio books.
The combination between radio-theater with classical music is perfect.

I am a grownup and I love listening to those CDs.
