Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anna Harwell Celenza is a musicologist and the author of several books for adults and children regarding music history and the history of art. Her childrens books include THE FAREWELL SYMPHONY, PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION, GERSHWIN'S RHAPSODY IN BLUE, and VIVALDI'S FOUR SEASONS'. Anna lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

Review:

"The seventh book in Celenza's music appreciation series is based upon Vivaldi's time as a music instructor at a Venetian orphanage. Vivaldi (1678 — 1741) encourages the orphans to envision stories behind the melodies, but his nontraditional methods cost him his position. As Vivaldi's fame blossoms, however, the chief governor invites him to visit the orphanage and to write compositions for the girls, which leads to the debut of The Four Seasons. Kitchel's watercolors blend natural and architectural forms, while the musicians' wide faces echo the contours of their instruments. Includes a CD recording of The Four Seasons. Ages 6 — 9. (July)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
