Similar to Abrams best-selling series, Can You Find It?, in this book, young readers are introduced to great music through great works of art. From "The Flight of the Bumblee" to "The Four Seasons" to "Night on Bald Mountain," beloved music is illustrated by great works of art, and the text and accompanying CD urge young readers to listen for certain instruments. Can you hear the car horns honking, played by clarinets? Can you hear the horses' hooves, played by castanets? When each CD track is played, young readers will stop, look, and listen as never before. Classical music is filled with unforgettable images. In this book, great examples of pictorial music are matched to masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, for an introduction to both music and art appreciation for young listeners. * Written by William Lach * Hardback with 40 pages * Ages: 4 - 8 years * Includes a CD featuring 12 short works and an introduction to the orchestra and the instruments
