Stories of Great Composers Book and CD
This book is written in the same vein as Meet the Great Composers, only intended for younger students. It consists of 12 units and 13 composers: Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel, Chopin, Foster, Dvorak, Sousa, Macdowell, Debussy and Rachmaninoff. Each unit begins with a brief biography of the composer. Following is a longer "story" from the composer's life. After this is a short section highlighting important compositions and a reference to a track on the accompanying CD so you can listen to one of them. These are different selections than those in Meet the Great Composers. As with that volume, a review activity concludes the unit. Again, there is no overlap and the exercises are designed for a slightly younger student. This is important, since the authors suggest continuing study with the Meet the Great Composers series.
