Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Anna Harwell Celenza's engaging fictionalized telling of the story behind Franz Joseph Haydn's famous symphony is a perfect introduction to classical music and its power. THE FAREWELL SYMPHONY brings to life a long summer spent at Esterháza, the summer palace of Prince Nicholas of Esterházy.

The blustering, bellowing prince entertained hundreds of guests at his rural retreat and demanded music for every occasion. As the months passed, Haydn was kept very busy writing and performing music for parties, balls, dinners, and even walks in the gardens. His orchestra members became homesick and missed their families. The anger, frustration, and longing of the musicians is expressed beautifully in the symphony born of the clever mind of Joseph Haydn who used it to convince Prince Nicholas that it was time to go home.

Wonderfully expressive illustrations by JoAnn E. Kitchel capture all the comedy and pathos of this unique symphony. Beautifully interpretive motifs and borders convey the setting and emotion of the story mirroring the structure of the symphony with the repetitive use of sets of four. Making classical music and history come alive with color and character, THE FAREWELL SYMPHONY ensures a place for the arts in the hearts and minds of children.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice Story based on Fact 5 février 2015
Par Chris O - Publié sur

This the best book I found for reading aloud to my elementary class on Haydn. The story is engaging and more importantly based on documented facts. My kids always ask if the stories are true and so I try to find ones based more on fact than fiction. The CD was also a nice accompaniment to reading the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful book for kids who had some exposure to music 29 août 2012

My 7 year old loved this book. We read it together, then he read it again on his own. The illustrations in the book are wonderful, it's written very well for a 1st grader+ level and the attached CD was a nice touch. I have to say though that if your child had little to no exposure to classical music, it may not be as interesting. With the right preparation, this is a wonderful book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fitting introduction 24 septembre 2011
Par Halvor Hosar - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a budding musicologist with a focus on Haydn, I bought this book as a way both of introducing what I am doing, and hopefully create a spark of interest in classical music, in the youngest members of my extended family. As a scholar, I am thoroughly impressed by Anna Harwell Celenza's work. The book really manages to capture Haydn's position at Esterháza, and her interpretation of the story and the symphony's musical content is as good as anyone's. At the end of the book there is a small text about the classical symphony, which is very nice, although it's instrument section does not mention flutes and timpani, which, to be sure, is not used in the Farewell symphony, but certainly were used often enough to warrant an inclusion even so. (Flutes are also featured in the second symphony on the following cd, no 31)

English is not my main language, but I do consider myself to be sufficiently fluent to have a say on matters of language: It strikes me that this book perhaps uses language that may be a bit too lofty for Amazon's recommended audience of 4-8 years; certainly the lower spectrum probably will not be able to properly grasp it.

The following cd has a recording of the Farewell symphony, as well of the "Horn signal" symphony, no. 31. Both of these recordings are of solid quality, and certainly improves the value of the book for anyone who hasn't already got an exhaustive collection of Haydn's symphonies. A very minor point, however, is that the Horn Signal is put first on the cd. While this is stated on the front of the cd it is a counter-intuitive solution, and it is bound to happen that someone not familiar with the works will be puzzled by why the first movement of the Horn signal symphony is described as "angry".

These are minor quibbles, though. If I am correct that the language used may be a bit too much for Amazon's suggested age group, that shouldn't be a problem for most; children do, as we all know, have a tendency to grow. I highly recommend this book, then, for anyone wanting to expose their own or other's children to the world of classical music. The music of the Farewell symphony I would think is supremely appropriate for this: It is intense, but not overpowering, of appropriate length and proportion, and is, finally, an acclaimed masterwork. And Celenza has certainly done a commendable job describing it for anyone not yet ready to take on James Webster's book on the subject. :)

I bought this for my six year old son. He liked the story. The CD he loved! He and my daughter danced to the music all morning. I look forward to reading the story over and over again for both of them

I do collect children's books and take into consideration the illustrations as well as the story. I rate this book excellent, the story is True, based on documented evidence. A CD is also included of the complete "The Farewell Symphony'" and I replay it ad infinitum. Excellent investment in quality entertainment. The illustrations are delightful! Dorothy Hope
