Product Description

Product Description

Classics for Children

A charming collection of piano music for children. Music with a straightforward appeal from the three great classical composers Bach, Mozart and Beethoven plus music by Schubert, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Debussy and others. The booklet text will help children - and even adults! - understand a little about the music they are hearing. A minuet, a sonata, and a set of variations (on 'Twinkle, twinkle, little star') are all explained along with help in enjoying character pieces in a variety of styles which capture the many different moods of classical music, from stately dances to songs without words, sleigh rides and music for fairies and nursery toys.

From the Artist

Beautiful piano music to excite, inspire and encourage, composed with children in mind, from Mozart's variations on 'Twinkle, twinkle little star' and evocative children's pieces by Debussy, Schumann and others, to minuets and other simple pieces which children often learn to play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piano music selection for children 20 Oct 2010
By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a delightful inexpensive double CD (catalogue number CD 504) of piano music played by Martin Souter. It includes many of the standard children's favourites, including works by Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Debussy and others. It comes with a helpful explanatory booklet that introduces the works to the young listeners.

1.0 out of 5 stars Classics for Children 22 Nov 2011
By MrsJ
Format:Audio CD
This was a real disappointment to me and my 7 year old daughter who loves classical music. It is basic plinkety plonk piano tunes which frankly I can play better myself. It really wasn't what was on the tin or maybe I didnt read the small print well enough. We've had it six weeks and only listened the once!
