Maximus Musicus Visits the Orchestra/Olafsdottir, H/Hardb/1921526130/S004-G
Book and CD set.
Maximus Musicus Visits the Orchestra is an introduction to the symphony orchestra, its musicians, their instruments and the music they play.
We follow the tale of a mouse, Maximus Musicus, who sneaks in the back door of a grand concert hall where a symphony orchestra is in rehearsal for a concert.
Maxi explores the wondrous array of instruments and the extraordinary individual sounds they produce. He enjoys himself so much that he decides to stay in the concert hall.
The story, which is equally suited for educational purposes as well as being an excellent bedtime story, opens up the world of concert music for children.
Accompanying the book is a specially produced CD with a narration of the story, Maxi's song and short orchestral works chosen to delight and inspire the young listener.
The narration is interwoven with all the sounds and music that go with the story: the musicians warming up, tuning, rehearsing and finally playing the concert pieces.
