Album Notes

Label's Note (4/99) - "The award-winning Classical Kids series introduces children -- and adults -- to the joys of classical music. A dramatic story, a little bit of history and the world's best-loved classical music set the scene for these fun-filled musical adventures.

In this touching tale, a gifted young violinist is sent to study music at the Pietà orphanage in Venice with the great composer Antonio Vivaldi. It's Carnival time, magic is in the air and mystery unfolds as Katarina enlists Giovanni, the gondolier, to help in her search to discover her origins. In a climactic scene, a masked stranger reunites Katarina with her family and she must make an important choice between staying with her music at the Pietà and entering the world. More than 24 excerpts from Vivaldi's most popular and important works have been freshly recorded."

Classical Kids has come up with a way to entertain children with classical music. This refreshing approach intertwines stories about the composer with excerpts of his music and portrays Vivaldi as a real person shown from a child's point of view. This cassette is packaged with fascinating facts about the artist and his music. Kids will be intrigued by this delightful recording. ~ MusD
