ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Beethoven\'s Wig

Have you ever heard a kid shout \"you rock!\" at a classical music concert? Or seen parents, children and grandparents singing, dancing and laughing along to classical music? Beethoven\'s Wig has. It\'s the classical music sensation for the whole family!

The brainchild of creator, lyricist, producer and lead vocalist Richard Perlmutter, Beethoven\'s Wig is zany lyrics set to the greatest hits of classical music. Filled with fact and fancy about the world\'s greatest composers and their compositions, Beethoven\'s Wig provides a fun foundation for classical music that will last a lifetime. The perfect blend of lunacy and learning, high brow and hijinks.

The Beethoven\'s Wig series has won an amazing 40 national awards including three Grammy Award nominations, and has been featured on NPR\'s Morning Edition and All Things Considered and NBC\'s Today Show.

Beethoven\'s Wig 2: More Sing Along Symphonies - Album Profile

Beethoven\'s Wig 2: More Sing Along Symphonies is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed and Grammy Award-nominated Beethoven’s Wig release. This CD, also Grammy-nominated, delivers 11 new zany, stick-in-your-head songs with lyrics that provide a fresh way to appreciate the greatest hits of classical music. Who knew classical music could be so much fun!

Each Beethoven’s Wig 2 “Sing Along Symphony” offers a whimsical rendition of a familiar classical piece by the most beloved composers including Verdi, Brahms, Schubert, Chopin, Strauss and Dvorak. The songs provide lyrical and musical hooks about the composition or composer that help listeners remember each composer and piece. This release offers an even more theatrical experience, with more background singers that encourage listeners to sing along.

The CD package includes lyrics, trivia questions about the artists and musical pieces, and a thoughtful list of related activities for parents, educators and children to enjoy together.

Beethoven’s Wig Is Very Big! - What Folks Are Saying

“An irreverent, witty approach to music appreciation… a laugh out loud album that pretty much guarantees listeners will forevermore recognize (the classics).” - Lynne Heffley, Los Angeles Times

“Inspired and wildly imaginative, Beethoven’s Wig is one of the best introductions to classical music you could give to your children. Beethoven’s Wig is an orchestral treasure with a sense of humor as old or new as its listeners. Highly recommended.” - Martin Keller , Amazon.com

\"A perfect cross between entertainment and education, powered by lyric writing of exceptional craft and imagination.... It evokes a century of musical storytelling, in the most whimsical and clever traditions spanning Gilbert & Sullivan to Tin Pan Alley to the best of Sesame Street. Lyricist and singer Richard Perlmutter understands children as well as he understands music, and his love and passion for both fairly show through in every track.\" - Ventura County Parent

“What’s the most far out place you could find a recording of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony? The answer lies in the CD itself.” - Susan Stamberg, National Public Radio “All Things Considered”

“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.” - Amy Barkat, BarnesandNoble.com

“Silly lyrics cleverly draw in young listeners to the world of classical music in this high-spirited recording. This often goofy sing-along CD is a lighthearted way for young children to make acquaintance with popular classical works. Both vocal and instrumental versions of the recording\'s eleven songs are included.” Five Stars.
– DiscoverySchool.com

Five stars! “ Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!” - Yvette Cadeaux, Tower Pulse Magazine

“...the most creative and most child-centered of the five [Grammy] finalists. I hope \"Beethoven\'s Wig\" receives the Grammy ... recordings like this do not come around often ....” - Fred Koch, Chicago Parent

“Perlmutter’s got goofball charm…the orchestra’s great, and his lyrics are truly hilarious.” - U.S. News & World Report
