Product Description:

Johann Sebastian Bach introduces his friend, Count Keyserlingk, to a young orphan boy, Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who has a talent for music. The Count agrees to take the boy in, but as a kitchen boy, not to study music as Bach had hoped. Still, Bach gives Goldberg lessons a few times a year, and Goldberg sneak into the salon each night to practice while everyone sleeps. Eventually, the Count discovers him and gradually relieves him of his other duties so he may devote more time to music. However, each week the Count requires him to learn a new piece to play for him. When the Count requests him to play a piece that has everything, even a riddle, will Bach be able to help Goldberg find the perfect piece? hc. - Melissa

Publisher Description:

Johann Gottlieb Goldberg is a young servant in the employ of Count Keyserlingk. A talented musician, the boy secretly practices playing the harpsichord at night. When the count discovers Goldberg one evening, he challenges Goldberg to combine all the harpsichord music he's learned--and to throw in a riddle. In a panic, Goldberg turns to Johann Sebastian Bach for the perfect piece of music to appease the count. Stylized illustrations include elements from the baroque period. For families, teachers, and curious music lovers of all ages.

Category Description for Once Upon a Masterpiece:

It looks like a gel crayon, but it's actually solid tempera paint in a stick! Is it drawing or painting? Either way, it goes on paper smoothly, dries in just 90 seconds so when you touch it, it doesn't smudge or come off. The colors are bold with lots of pigment and you can use them on paper, poster paper, cardboard, canvas and even wood. Perfect for those times when you don't want to mess with getting out liquid tempera paint, water, brushes, etc. These are keepers! Offered in vibrant rainbow colors, super bright neons and shiny bold metallics. And remember, these are paints so keep them capped when not in use. Non-toxic. ~ Emily
