A fun and friendly introduction to Tchaikovsky full of music, for young children.
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 on the sounds themselves, and sometimes on the composers. With a simple interface to stop and start the tracks and animation, or hear the narrated text, these apps open the door to a wonderful world that children and parents can discover together.
Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky: a great Russian name for a great Russian composer! Tchaikovsky was not always a happy man. He didn’t laugh a lot. But he wrote music that is full of good melodies. He often felt sad, but sometimes this made him write music that was even more special. This app is all about Tchaikovsky. Imagine the ballet dancers twirling around to his tunes: you can twirl around too, if you like!
