Category Description for Tchaikovsky Discovers America:

This story tells of the great composer's arrival in New York for the grand opening of Carnegie Hall in 1891 and his famous trip to Niagara Falls. A surprise encounter with a young family reveals much about Tchaikovsky - his life in Russia, his love of music and his fears of conducting. In the end, both the composer and the family discover something about courage and about themselves. More than two dozen excerpts of Tchaikovsky's music are featured including The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The First Piano Concerto, String Serenade, and 1812 Overture. A poignant story of the meeting of old world influences and new world experiences.




Category Description for Classical Kids:

Each audio is a unique combination of music, history and dramatic story-telling, designed to both introduce children to the composers and their music. Each story includes at least one child interacting with the composer, helping the younger set to identify with a character and get a better feel for the historical time period. Trials and triumphs of the great composers are experienced. Stories are based on historical fact. Unlike the Music Masters series, which uses a narrator between musical excerpts to tell you about the composer's life, these tapes use actors and dramatization to bring the story alive. Each composer's music is featured throughout the tape, giving children a taste of their best-loved pieces. All have won Parents' choice awards and other musical awards.

Teacher Notes include additional background information, discussion topics, activity ideas and suggestions for exploring the music.

Enjoyable and educational
We love how this series mixes stories about the composer with the music. Our whole family likes to listen to these on car trips, and it allows me to have music appreciation lessons with our child who doesn't want anything to do with music lessons.
