Comment:

Get 'em cultured-up early: that's our motto. Introducing your kids to the world's greatest classical composers needn't be half as daunting as it sounds, if you know which pieces to choose, and that's precisely the point of these Essentials. Take Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries", which opens Act III of [i]Die Walküre[/i], and is arguably best enjoyed with arms outstretched in imitation of an aeroplane, running as fast a possible while blowing an engine-noise raspberry. Or Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumble Bee" which so closely matches the sound of the insect in question, it's a cast-iron source of delight. Need something a little more dainty? How about the famous pizzicato from Delibes' ballet, [i]Sylvia[/i]. Holst will get your young 'uns interested in the heavens, in Next Steps.
