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.
A celebration of poetry, song and classical music. The story follows a family from playtime to dreamtime as they journey through the nursery, the park, the streets of Olde London and then off to bed. A rich variety of great classical lullabies, rounds for family singing and traditional English songs as well as pieces from the Leider, Romantic Opera and Classical Orchestral traditions are featured.
Excerpts from Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, Schubert, Pachelbel and Tchaikovsky are woven into a colourful musical collage with classic poetry from three centuries - William Blake (1700s), Eugene Fields (1800s) and Dennis Lee (1900s) - with poems written and performed by today's children.

From the Artist
In many ways, this is the recording most close to my heart. Here, I could recreate and actually play the piano for the romantic repertoire I love so well. This recording also proved beyond a doubt something I have always believed about children: they are expressive, gifted, deep people and we should never talk down to them. On a whim, I went into a junior school and had the children write poetry to Vivaldi's Piccolo Concerto. My only words: "Here we have a high, high piccolo and a low string pad. Write about a magic space in between." The kids wrote for a while, then insisted on reading their words aloud over the music. Even the guinea pig fell silent as their extraordinary words poured into that classroom. This recording is a testament to the talents of children everywhere. It is also a chance for parents to sing with their kids the rounds they sang around the campfire: Dona Nobis Pacem, Hey Ho Nobody Home etc. The last track on Daydreams and Lullabies is my favorite from the entire series: Pachelbel's Canon, overlaid with almost all the melodies which have gone before: serene, radiant, warm, and affirming that there is a kinder gentler universe somewhere. Probably our children are closer to it than we are. Susan Hammond, Classical Kids producer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Came on time, for a baby shower. It is a cd I know, loved and used with my kids.
Nice to pass it on to a new young mother.
Thanks for shipping so quickly.
I love this. It's actually a little slice of my happiest, most peaceful childhood moments. It's soothing, comforting and one of my favorite CDs.Published on Feb. 19 2001
