Product Description

Juanita the Spanish Lobster is the third release in the top award-winning Stories in Music™ children's CD series with the London Philharmonic and conductor Stephen Simon, and the first American recording of the British classic. In the tradition of Peter and the Wolf, the Stories in Music™ series of new classics for narrator and symphony orchestra introduces young people to the wonders of orchestral music.

Juanita the Spanish Lobster tells the humorous tale of a lady lobster who wants to go to the land. The spirited flamenco music, which matches Juanita's spunk and Spanish heritage, and the bel canto opera, perfect for the Welsh-singing lobster, Caradoc, together create an unforgettable symphonic story.

The CD also includes additional tracks that inform and enrich the listening experience, much like an audio guide at a museum. The child learns what to listen for in the music, how this wonderful work was created by a BBC television personality and British composer, David Haslam, and hear the "O Juanita" bel canto aria rearranged into an Elvis-style doo-wop song. A karaoke track of the song at the end of the recording provides a fun opportunity for the entire family to put on their blue suede shoes and sing along.

I purchased this CD for my grandchildren and thought I would listen to it first. The music is beautiful! The story is entertaining and funny! And the background information is interesting and informative. All in all, it is a well rounded production, and I think it will delight all who listen to it, young and old.

I adore this CD. I bought it for my little nephew, and he listens to it non-stop. The tenor who sings Caradoc is amazing!

I bought 3 of these "Stories in Music"--all very different in style. My kids LOVE them! I think their favorite is this one, Juanita (I have 2 girls and a 3 year old boy.) The music is well done. The story is entertaining. The narration is so lively. We also bought Casey at the Bat, and Swan Lake. Great for car rides, but my kids even love to sit on the couch and listen.
