Item Description...
Overview
This is a simple, inspiring children`s biography of the great musician Haydn.This story, like all the stories of the great composers by Wheeler and Deucher, will win its way into the hearts of all music loving children: for it, too, is told with all the understanding, sympathy and appriciation that its two inspired authors have to give. "Little Sepperl [as the child Franz Joseph Haydn was called] always sat on a wooden stool near his father and with tow smooth peices of wood held firmly in his hands, played his own make-believe violin. His parents watched the boy drawing one stick slowly across the other as he played so seriously, keeping perfect time. " Then one day he went to live with his cousin in a town near Vienna, close by the river Danube. There he learned to read music and sing. Once when the drummer was too sick to march in a procession, little Franz Joseph was asked to take his place. So he practiced all day on the meal barrel with a cloth tied over the top...until he could play the part without a single mistake. Such was the musical beginning of the boy who later played before kings in palaces, and who has left us some of the most beautiful music ever written. For boys and girls, from 8 to 12 years of age, this book is particularly recommended. It has the great value of being instructive, cultural and inspiring, as well as recreational.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent and Accessible Children's Biography  Jul 17, 2007
This is such a sweet little book for children, and adults will enjoy reading through it as well. The way Haydn's childhood and early years are portrayed is delightfully entertaining, as well as educational. If this had been a little tale invented to amuse children instead of a factual biography, it could hardly be more enchanting. Readers will find it easy to remember these interesting details of Haydn's life because they will be in sympathy with him in his escapades, disappointments, and successes. In addition to describing the life of this composer, the authors also attempt an introduction to his music. Several musical pieces are included for the reader to play on the piano to see for themselves how charming Haydn's music is. Musical terms are also explained, such as, "A sonata, you know, is music written for solo instruments with an accompaniment", or "A symphony is music written for an orchestra and is divided into several parts."

I heartily recommend this excellent book, especially for children who may be learning Haydn's music in their lessons. The authors have done an outstanding job, and I will be looking for their others.
