A fun and friendly introduction to Beethoven 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.
Beethoven was a musical giant. He wasn't taller or fatter than everyone else, but his music is big and his name is important. Beethoven is like the Olympic champion of classical music. Some of the music he wrote is strong and serious, and some of it is very gentle. Listen here to orchestras, pianos, violins, and other instruments playing some of the most famous pieces of all!
