Best Christmas Gift Ever: The Soldier's Tale HAS ARRIVED!
The first copies arrived on Thursday at 7 PM. The artwork is gorgeous, a veritable storybook inside the program booklet, and the sound is stunning. The conductor, Stephen Simon, thinks that it may be the best in the entire Maestro Classics' Stories in Music series. It is certainly sophisticated - perfect for junior high school age, but also will be enjoyed by younger children who love to read and love music.
The Amazing Baz's dance-mix is a real winner. Great fun and continues to bounce around in your head.
There is no doubt when you listen to this that Stravinsky was the greatest composer of the 20th century.
