A fun, friendly introduction to classical music for young children, with many famous and well-loved pieces.
The ‘Little’ apps from Naxos, beautifully compact and with endearing animated illustrations, are ideal introductions for young children to classical music. Each selection of tracks is carefully tailored for younger listeners, including famous pieces as well as unexpected gems. The narrated text is a friendly outline of what the music means – sometimes concentrating on the stories behind it, sometimes the sounds themselves, and sometimes on the composers. With a simple interface to stop and start tracks and animation, or hear the narrated text, these apps open the door to a wonderful world that children and parents can discover together.
‘Da-da-da-DAAAAH, Da-da-da-DAAAAH’: the start of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is really famous. See if you recognise it! It’s just one of many popular pieces here. There are some animals, too – an elephant and a swan. And right at the end, guess which boy wizard joins the party... Come and join it too!
