Composer's Special DVDs
Turbulent times are captured in the lives of famous composers in these videos. As the composer faces stress and pressure, resolution is found through interaction with a young child. These multi-award winning DVDs run just under an hour and contain several bonus features. The 6-DVD set includes Bach's Fight for Freedom, Bizet's Dream, Handel's Last Chance, Liszt's Rhapsody, Rossini's Ghost, and Strauss: King of 3/4 Time. Also see the Artists and Inventors series.
The Teacher's Guide includes reproducible student activity sheets, cross-curricular activity suggestions, and teaching information for the composers featured in this series. Although CD tracks are referenced for class listening, you can find all music under the Special Features menu on the DVDs (soundtrack CDs no longer available). Activities are intended for elementary and middle school level.help desk software
