Can your child name the composer who could write music he would
never hear? Did you know that The Blue Danube was not accepted in
Europe but when played in America it became Strauss' greatest
achievement. What famous composer fell asleep during the playing of
the world famous Franz Liszt? Did you know that the Nutcracker
Ballet has gotten more people interested in "classical" music than
any other music in the world?
Give your children a love for "classical" music while they are
young. Color the Classics will help them to understand the history
behind the pieces of timeless music. In our first book, Godly
Composers, we chose men who sought after glorifying God through
their music. In the second composer book we do not present the
composers in the same light. Some of the musicians honored God and
some did not. By the era of the composers in our third in the
composer series, music was no longer written to glorify God. The
purpose of this work is to present the lives of four composers to
help you teach your children to enjoy their music. Composers III
includes: Beethoven, Strauss,Jr., Brahms and Tchaikovsky.
