Encourage an appreciation for classical music with this CD from Maestro Classics.
In this story the lazy apprentice, confident that he can use his master’s spell to do his chores, chants the magic spell and takes a nap. As the water swirls around the workshop getting ever higher, the apprentice awakens, only to discover that he does not know the spell to stop the brooms! A thrilling narration accompanies Paul Dukas’ dramatic musical score made famous by Walt Disney’s Fantasia. This fun & familiar music was recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra (the same orchestra that recorded The Lord of the Rings soundtrack) and features Grammy nominated conductor Stephen Simon and the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps.
An enclosed 24-page activity booklet contains a biography of Dukas, information on pitched percussion instruments, sheet music, a kitchen percussion play-along, games and more!
