Product Description:

A young boy's life is turned upside-down; Ludwig Van Beethoven has moved in upstairs! Based in 19th century Vienna, this is a story of the creatively brilliant Beethoven who is struggling with his deafness as he composes his Ninth Symphony. Based on the audio recording, this engaging television special/home video drama is a family film capturing the spirit of the composer. An Emmy and Dove award winner. 52 minutes, closed captioned.

Category Description for Beethoven Lives Upstairs:

The story begins with the majestic funeral of Beethoven in Vienna. During a lively exchange of letters between Christoph and his uncle, the real-life eccentricities of the famous composer are revealed. Over time, the boy comes to understand the real Beethoven: his love of nature, the tragedy of his deafness, and the greatness of his music. The story ends with Christoph attending the famous first performance of the Ninth Symphony. Over thirty pieces of Beethoven's music are featured including excerpts from Moonlight Sonata, Symphonies #5,6,7,8, Für Elise, Nel Cor Piu Variations and Violin "Spring" Sonata.




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.

I am giving this to one of my grandchildren for his birthday. I am a retired elementary music teacher who used this resource for years. My students enjoyed it so much. Thought my grandson would also.
