Swan Lake from Maestro Classics is beautiful ballet. Tchaikovsky’s greatest ballet score, is the tale of a prince who falls in love with a beautiful princess. The princess, however, has been turned into a swan by an evil magician, and only the prince’s love can break the spell. This narrated version of the classic tale for children is sure to delight all who love ballet and enchanting storytelling.
Included what is called the Digipak, which includes the CD, and a booklet that tells about the composer, the conductor, the narrator, and has several fun activities for the children that are related to the CD.
The case that it comes in is beautiful, as is the CD itself.
On the CD you will first listen to an introduction which tells the background of the story, and which instruments represent which characters. This is really helpful.
Your children will also learn all about the composer, and about the music, among other things.
A 24-page activity book included with the CD contains a biography of Tchaikovsky, information on acoustic and electric guitars, sheet music and words for a sing-along song, explanation of major and minor keys, puzzles and more.
We really enjoy all maestro Classics CD's. They are very well done, and the music is so well done.
You can find Swan Lake and other CD's here for $16.98 for the Cd or $9.98 for the download.
I would go with the CD!
