Notes & Reviews:

The 'My First' album series from Naxos is the ideal springboard for a lifelong journey through classical music. Each selection is carefully tailored for younger listeners and includes famous tracks as well as unexpected gems. The booklet is full of information on every piece of music. Unique and imaginative, these CDs will open a door to a wonderful world that children and parents can discover together. An orchestra has lots of different instruments producing lots of different sounds. Whether they're playing on their own or all at the same time, it can be a tremendously exciting experience to listen to them. From Wagner's grand 'Ride of the Valkyries' to Tchaikovsky's gentle 'Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy', you can hear on this album how the character of an orchestra changes all the time!
