Children's Classics 101

DECCA released a whole new series of classic recordings under the 101 series, with each boxed set containing 6 CD’s. The release of the Children’s Classics has all your favourites, from Britten’s “The Young Peron’s Guide to the Orchestra”, to Ravel’s “Mother Goose” to Dukas’ “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”. This set has something for everyone and may surprise you with a few tunes that you might not know that well but are simply delightful, such as Bizet’s “Jeux d’enfants”. There is a huge variety of music to sample in this set. Our favourite is the “Sorcerer’s Apprentice”, takes you back to the 1938 Walt Disney animated cartoon of this story with Mickey Mouse. Every item is played by great orchestras, lead  by world renown conductors and you even have the great English actor Sir Ralph Richardson narrating “Peter and the Wolf”. You couldn't ask for a greater cast of talented artists to hear such beautiful music created for children and to build a better parenthood. A must buy set!
