The Composer Is Dead (Book & CD) by Lemony Snicket
5.0 out of 5 stars For use in schools, 5 Dec 2012
This book is a perfect addition to learning about the instruments and sections of the orchestra. It is ideal for 9 years up. The recording on the CD is the story read by the author accompanied by a brilliant orchestral score. The music gives an idea of the 'characters' of the instruments along with their role in the orchestra. A nice alternative to Britten's 'Young Persons Guide' as well. Inspirational!
