Used Joseph Haydn (Great Musicians Series) (USED)

$7.00
Joseph Haydn, The Merry Little Peasant, is a simple, inspiring children s biography of the great musician Franz Joseph Haydn which will win its way into the hearts of all music-loving children. As a child, Franz Joseph Haydn was called "Little Sepperl." He used to sit on a stool near his father with two smooth pieces of wood held firmly in his hands, playing his own make-believe violin. His parents watched as the boy drew one piece of wood slowly across the other. He played very seriously and kept perfect time! One day he went to live with his cousin in a town near Vienna. He learned to read music and sing. Once when the drummer was too sick to march in a procession, little Franz Joseph was asked to take his place. He practiced all day on a barrel with a cloth tied over the top until he could play the part without a single mistake. Such were the musical beginnings of the boy who would play before kings and who penned some of the most beautiful music ever written. Recommended for boys and girls from 8 to 12 years of age."

USED HANDEL AT THE COURT OF KINGS (USED)

$6.00
With clarity, and admirable simplicity keyed to the understanding of children, Opal Wheeler has traced the many-sided career of George Frederic Handel, whose restless nature vied always with his tremendous ability as a composer and director. Handel s strange boyhood, clouded by the fact that his father did not want him to become a musician, and the later years when, thanks to the patronage of the Duke of Saxe-Weissenfels, his music was played before the greatest music lovers of Europe makes for fascinating reading. The selections of Handel s music included are those best understood and most apt to be mastered by young musicians. One evening, back in 1691, conservative Doctor Handel was shocked and dismayed to find his small son carrying the torch at the head of a band of singers wandering through the little town of Halle. The good doctor never quite understood the all-consuming love of music which drove his son from childhood on and on to the great heights he eventually attained as the beloved Father of the Oratorio, the composer of the magnificent MESSIAH. Opal Wheeler has given us here the most finished, most completely satisfying book on her list of fine music biographies. Handel at the Court of Kings should be a favorite of all children who love music, whether they are young musicians themselves or not."

    USED LUDWIG BEETHOVEN AND THE CHIMING TOWER BELLS (USED)

    $6.00
    Here is the story of Ludwig van Beethoven, greatest master of all, told with feeling and delicate skill for boys and girls. "Perhaps he, too, will become a musician, like all the Beethovens!" said Father Johann...From then on, the four-year-old Ludwig was kept at the piano hour after hour until the long exercises were mastered. The chiming bells in the chapel tower comforted him and wonderful melodies crept into his mind as the twilight crept over the city... "So...then you are a composer, as well as an organist," said Herr Zenser, the chapel organist. "But Ludwig - this is very difficult music - much too difficult for your small hands to play!" "Oh, that does not matter, Herr Zenser," answered the young Ludwig, "I will play it when I am bigger." "Surely he will be another Mozart some day," some said...Later he was to study with Mozart - go to Vienna - lead one of the finest orchestras in all the city - create great symphonies - until the name of Beethoven was spoken everywhere and eager visitors made their way to his door... This is his story...an inspiring story of his achievements against all odds...of his growing deafness..."Long live Beethoven!" shouted the audience ..."But the master could not hear them, and as a singer turned him gently to face the audience, the noble head bowed low as he saw from the flutter of handkerchiefs, the applause that rained upon him...". Thus Opal Wheeler captures the superb quality of musical greatness of Beethoven and communicates it to boys and girls...a deeply stirring tribute to the greatest composer of all.
