Overview

Introduce classical music to your little cuties with a little help from Sing Along Symphonies. This entertaining album recasts the "greatest hits" of classical music -- including Tchaikovsky's "1812" Overture and Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik -- with some wild and wacky kid-friendly lyrics. The disc's hilarious rendition of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony claims "Beethoven's wig is big/ it's stylish and it's handsome./ It costs a small king's ransom/ 500 bucks and then some!" Tchaikovsky's "1812" Overture takes on an even more bodacious sound with a little help from the explosive lines: "Tchaikovsky's Cannonball/ Blew up the concert hall!/ But everyone could see/ I made history./ That's the great Tchaikovsky's Cannonball!" This wonderfully imaginative approach to "serious music" for little people exposes the younger audience to the wonders of the classics with an irresistibly skewed sense of humor.
