Review:
The classic story of the Sorcerer's Apprentice is basis for this magical musical lesson. Using the now signature format, Bonnie and Stephen Simon bring lessons of classical music to life. Stephen Simon conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of Paul Dukas' music as Yadu narrates the story of the apprentice, a lazy young boy who tries to shortcut his studies and conjure up a magic spell to do his chores. In tracks 1-5, the Simons instruct listeners about the music and the story. A masterstroke of fun is found in tracks 6 and 7 as youngsters are invited to participate as kitchen percussionists. With music lessons like this, don't be surprised when a young Harry Potter fan asks to trade in a wizard's wand for a maestro's baton.
