Mozart, The Wonder Boy
by Opal Wheeler & Sybil Deucher
Back in print!
Originally published in 1934
We love the Wheeler & Deucher composers` series from the mid-20th century. This classic children`s work on Mozart will be enjoyed by all family members, whatever their age. We are amazed how much history, biographical material, and music are included in each work.
Mozart, The Wonder Boy presents the musical genius of this child prodigy, the loving family in which he was reared, and the impact he had on the world around him and to generations beyond.
"Here is a book about the most musical boy that ever lived. Fortunately for us he wrote a great deal of music, and this we can hear today even though we can never hear him play it. His music is always lovely and you will surely hear more of it as you grow up. Through his music, Mozart will always be to us a wonder child and a wonder man."
(Peter W. Dykema-from the original 1941 edition).
There are 36 musical scores included in the text of the book, AND the same music is on the MP3 CD (described below) in a printable format straight from your computer. You donĎt even have to go to the music store to purchase the music. Just print it out from the CD. In addition to the printable sheet music, there are printable pictures to color, and the recorded music of each selection.
Not only are there solos on this CD, but there is a Minute duo for Violin and Piano and several piano duets with both the primo and secondo parts.
