Welcome to the Symphony: A Musical Exploration of the Orchestra Using Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 (Listen to the Music)
Welcome to the symphony! An illustrated introduction to the world of the orchestra through Beethoven's Symphony No.5 - with nineteen sound buttons that allow children to hear how the different instruments sound, and what different musical concepts mean.
"An introduction to one of the greatest of all classical works that quite wondrously includes not just words and pictures, but some of the music itself. And to think that the musicians playing the excerpts are young people as well, members of the New York Youth Symphony! What could be more inspiring?"
