ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the tradition of Peter and the Wolf, Maestro Classics presents Ernest Lawrence Thayer’s classic American poem, Casey at the Bat, with original music composed and conducted by Stephen Simon. Created for the bicentennial in 1976 and performed on the Stories in Music™ children’s series at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, this classic poem is brought to life in an inspired, exciting way.
******
Stories in Music™ is the new classical music CD series for children and families produced by Maestro Classics. The Stories in Music series premiered at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC with the Washington Chamber Symphony. Maestro Stephen Simon and music educator/producer Bonnie Ward Simon have now recorded the series with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, adding additional educational and participatory tracks to each CD. Rave reviews nationwide and numerous awards have greeted this unique series with its signature format.

The first four releases in the series, Stories in Music: Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, Stories in Music: Juanita the Spanish Lobster (also available in Spanish language edition Juanita la langosta española), Stories in Music: Casey at the Bat, and The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will soon be followed by Stories in Music: Peter and the Wolf (release date May 1, 2007) and Stories in Music: Swan Lake.

Each CD is a combination of music and educational information designed to give the listener ideas on what to listen for and how to listen. It is the “backstage pass” into the minds of the author, composer, and conductor, namely the creators of the work. The CDs also include sing-along or play-along tracks for audience participation.

The CDs are highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn more about classical music and are excellent for family car trips or school carpooling, music teachers’ music appreciation classes, and elementary school teachers who want to include music in their classrooms. They are the answer to, “Where do you go after Raffi?”

The Stories in Music series offers three significant benefits:

To discover the magical sounds of the symphony orchestra.”
This new series of recordings introduces young people to an orchestra's magical sounds and awe-inspiring power, and helps them understand that music can be dramatic, can paint pictures, and is often filled with humor.

“To encourage adults and children to listen to music together.”
The very young will listen for the story, the slightly older child will enjoy the music, and the adult will be surprised how much he/she has learned.

“To hone listening skills and accumulate musical memories.”
The musical discussions will sharpen listening skills of children and adults alike, the discussion of the story will promote conversation about human values, and the musical work will leave each listener whistling a new tune.

Casey at the Bat
This poem is so much fun to listen to; I loved the musical back ground. A real work of art that I like to share with friends and family while driving. It is most interesting to learn about the background of the poem. I also learned about music. Altogether delightfull!
