Narrator Colm Feore creates an engaging storytelling experience for young listeners in this musical introduction to composer Antonio Vivaldi. The story begins on a cold winter's night in Venice, Italy, the home of Minim, a little mouse who loves cheese and beautiful music. A dangerous adventure leads Minim to visit an orphanage where he narrowly escapes a threatening cat and makes a surprising discovery. There is an orchestra of girls playing stringed instruments and performing for a conductor with bright red hair--Antonio Vivaldi. The composer's music and occasional sound effects heighten the sense of place and enhance Feore's lively narration as the voice of Minim. This delightful approach to classical music includes two movements from Vivaldi's CONCERTO FOR WINTER and a pdf of the illustrated book. S.A.A. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
