In a lush orchestral hall, two cats and a mouse sit on an empty stage. Then, a single trombone enters, "With mournful moan and silken tone". He's followed by a trumpet who in turn is followed by a French horn, a cello, a violin, a flute, a clarinet, an oboe, a bassoon, and (finally) a harp. With everyone in place, and the conductor stationed before them, everyone plays together in perfect harmony. "It's the music that we all adore. It's what we go to concerts for". Each separate instrument has its own personality and poem. The oboe sobs and the bassoon makes everyone laugh. Lines like, "With steely keys that softly click / Its breezy notes so darkly slick / A sleek, black, woody clarinet / Is number seven - now septet". As you can see, by reading this book kids learn not only what certain instruments look like, but also what groups of people between the numbers of one to nine (solo to nonet) are called.Read more ›
