Listen to the Birds

Winner of: Parents' Choice Gold AwardThroughout history birds have caught the imagination of composers and inspired their creativity, and this selection of works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, and others introduces children to classical music through the discovery of the melodious similarities between notes produced by instruments such as the flute, the organ, and the harpsichord and the birds' songs. In addition to lovely illustrations, the book features a glossary of musical terms, a short biography of each composer, and a brief description of each bird evoked or mentioned in the composition. The accompanying CD offers excerpts of 20 different recordings--ranging from "The Goldfinch," "Hens and Roosters," and "The Dance of the""Swans" to "The Cuckoo and the Nightingale," "Piano Concerto N," and "Dance of the""Firebird"--performed by world-class luminaries including the London Symphony Orchestra, the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the Toronto Chamber Orchestra.

About the Author

Ana Gerhard studied as a concert pianist at the Mexican National Conservatory. She has taught piano for several years and has hosted numerous radio programs dedicated to the promotion of classical music. Cecilia Varela is the illustrator of several children's books and has received the prestigious Conculta Award in Mexico in recognition of her work.


"All in all, the book, though slight in size, is expansive in its reach. The result is a surprisingly thorough beginner's introduction to classical music." --Suzanne MacNeille, New York Times
