5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids and adults 2 Oct 2008
By Steve P
Format:Audio CD
I and my kids aged 10, 14 and 18 all enjoyed this. CD gives you a little background and some excerpts of music on each composer. Interesting for those who know little or nothing about classical music, or who the famous named composers are. More Classical composors continues in a similar theme, though with a different narrator. Recommended for long car journeys.

5.0 out of 5 stars great 5 Jun 2012
By deppie
Format:Audio CD
My daughters (7&9) loved this. They like the stories and the music. My daughter decided to do a presentation on Mozart, and knew more about him than I because of the cd. My husband and I learned from it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great work, informative 8 Aug 2007
By A Tall Silverback - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's really enjoyable work by Darren Henley and beautifully narrated by conductor Marin Alsop. Lots of information. Great amount of music. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who is interested in classical music and wants to educate their kids.
It consists of 2 CD's.
Thanks to NAXOS, Darren and Marin for their work, it is a great audiobook and an asset to any classical collection!

I hoped it would be just a story which I could let younger girls (5 - 8 years) listen to as well. Unfortunately too much information for them to absorb.
5.0 out of 5 stars My 9 y/o son loves it ! 28 Sep 2011

Format:Audio CD
I am very glad I 've purchased it because it's my son's favorite. Though clearly designed for children, this engaging audio experience is educational for a wide audience.
