This charming compilation is cheerfully hosted by the clear and friendly voice of Marin Alsop, who walks young (and curious adult) listeners through an engaging history of classical music. Alsop's commentary leads and follows ear-pleasing segments of great classical music, briskly recorded masterworks punctuating short biographies and observations. The language is clear and chatty, with a final disc featuring games and lots of interactive fare. A wonderful way to learn about the great names and histories of the world's great composers and musical movements. D.J.B. 2004 Spoken Word Grammy Finalist, 2005 Audie Award Winner (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
