9781579121488: Story of the Orchestra : Listen While You Learn About the Instruments, the Music and the Composers Who Wrote the Music!

Eye-catching illustrations and an accompanying 70-minute CD make this an exciting and educational introduction to the world of classical music-from composers and music history to the instruments of the orchestra-for elementary age children (and parents, too!). Illustrated in exquisite and colorful detail with over 100 original drawings and photographs, the engaging text is broken into three sections:

  • An introduction to each instrument of the orchestra from the cello to the timpani
  • The stories of famous composers from Bach to Stravinsky.
  • An explanation of different musical styles from Baroque to Modern.
Each step of the way, children can listen to actual musical examples of what they are learning about. Young readers will hear the sound of an actual violin as they study the instrument and enjoy the playful tune of a Mozart minuet as they read about the composer's precocious exploits as a child.

Join Orchestra Bob on this fun and exciting musical journey. Perfect for young students just starting to play an orchestral instrument as well as for parents and teachers looking for a simple introduction to the principles and history of classical music.

From the Back Cover:

Orchestra Bob Takes You on a Fun and Exciting Journey Through the World of Classical Music...

Along the way you'll:

Listen to the greatest works in classical music and hear each instrument of the orchestra and learn fun facts about the music, composers and musicians, including:

  • Bach wasn't famous until 100 years after he died
  • Some people think that years of playing the oboe can make you crazy
  • Beethoven was totally deaf by the time he wrote the famous 9th Symphony
  • The contrabassoon would be 16 feet tall if unwound
  • Copland composed at night and on weekends and had a day job as an insurance agent

Play track 1 to hear Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries. This is the moment in grand German opera that everyone finds easy to make fun of: In the mythological world of Wagner's opera Die Walkure, nine sisters (yes, the ones wearing horned helmets) on horseback fallen heroes. The looks may be silly, but the music is powerful, thrilling and vivid- the galloping of the horses is almost visual in the music.

From the Inside Flap:

The Story of the Orchestra

I'm Orchestra Bob and I'm here to lead you on an exciting journey through the world of classical music. Listen, learn and enjoy as I cue powerful works from the greatest composers in the world. Along the way, I'll tell you wonderful and wacky stories about deaf composers, quirky musicians and the inspirations behind the great works.

You'll hear Wagner's powerful Ride of the Valkyries and imagine the warrior goddesses on horseback storming through the battlefields. Beethoven will inspire you with selections from his two most famous pieces, the 5th and 9th symphonies, and you'll tap your toes to Bernstein's jazzy dance music from West Side Story.

Then, I'll introduce you to the beautiful instruments of the orchestra from common ones that you have probably seen and heard to rare and weird-looking ones that produce strange sounds. It's my honor to take you on this grand journey, and I think you'll find it as thrilling as I do.
