This little CD contains a classic piece of music, a history of the piece, and an explanation of some of the movements within the piece--in short, it's an outstanding self-contained music lesson simplified and made enjoyable for younger listeners. After playing the whole piece, Bonnie Ward Simon invites the listener in, clearly explaining about the composer, Paul Dukas, and how Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse immortalized the piece. Conductor Stephen Simon is friendly and easygoing, engaging listeners as they learn to identify patterns, changes in tempo and mood, and a variety of other musical skills. An excellent choice to help children develop an appreciation of music, wonderful for parents and educators alike. W.L.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
