"This story is great! I'm a Suzuki violin player and this tape has great recordings of many of the songs. Not only are there wonderful recordings, but the story is full of suspense and is very enjoyable to listen to. Ever since i was a toddler, I listened to it and now that I am in my early teens i still find it a really good story. I find myself listening over and over to it. After listening to it dozens of times it still is just as good and never gets tiring to listen to. If you are thinking of buying a story on cd this is definatly the one to get! Both you and your child will love it! I know that my mom and I do!"
The very best

"I started listening to this story since before I can remember, when it was just a tape. I am 20 years old, and Vivaldi's Four Seasons is still my favorite classical work. I had other classical tapes as a kid, but this is the one I remember most and remember well. The story is just amazing of Katerina, and it is an easy way for young kids to sit and listen to classical works, while still being entertained by an audio book. I recommend this to all parents out there for their children."
Katerina- an inspiration for the last 11 years

"My daughter first listened to this tape at age 3. We listened to this tape (and when it wore out, a CD) constantly. As a young Suzuki violin student, the character Katarina inspired my daughter's desire to be able to play the A Minor Concerto that Katarina plays upon her introduction to the girls in the orchestra of the School of the Pieta. When she was five, she arranged all of her Barbies into an Orchestra, and put a red-headed stuffed animal as the conductor, Vivaldi. Similar to children mentioned in other reviews, by the time she was six, having listened to this series (and other classical music) frequently, she could identify the orchestral work of most of the major composers, and place the work of obscure composers in the appropriate time period.

We never tired of this CD, and I will now puchase it for a young niece. If you want to purchase something you and your family will treasure, this is the one.
