Description

The Classical Kids series has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide since its debut in 1988 and revolutionized the way children, parents and educators approach classical music. Each composer's music is presented in historical context, told through the eyes of a fictional child who leads listeners into the composer's world. A young girl falls into a production of Mozart's great opera "The Magic Flute." Sarah, Prince Tamino and a faint-hearted dragon embark on a magic journey from the dark realm of the Queen of the Night to Sarastro's enchanted castle, with only a magic flute and bells to guide them to the princess Pamina. Together they reunite Prince Tamino with his Princess and help the birdman Papageno find his Papagena. This recording includes the most popular themes and arias from the original opera, all freshly translated and recorded using child-appropriate verse. Lyrics included. "Art made accessible: nobody does it better than Classical Kids." - Entertainment Weekly "...a classical series with just enough fantasy - and reality - to captivate kids. Parents will relish replaying Classical Kids as much as the kids do." - Parenting "Hammond has done a remarkable and lasting service to music, education and the opportunity for children to enjoy that which is most enduring and imperishable of all human creations." - Full Score "...an innovative mix of theatrics and music...the composer's most famous material spills out naturally, color-coded by the strong images that surround it." - Edmonton Journal "The combination of high opera and all-ages chuckles here is peerless." - The Record "Susan Hammond's music is alive...perhaps this type of musical education can give classical music a hope for the future." - Calgary Tonite
