Описание: Composed in 1910, The Firebird was the first of many successful ballets that brought Igor Stravinsky international recognition. In collaboration with Sergei Diaghilev of the Ballets Russe, Stravinsky based his score on an old Russian fairytale. It tells a musical story of a prince's kindness to a captive bird, his encounter with a bevy of princesses trapped in an enchanted garden, and his battle against an army of monsters. "You don't even have to see the stage," explained Leonard Bernstein in his Young People's Concerts, "the music tells you everything. This music does honor to the art of ballet, and to music, and to Stravinsky himself, the greatest master our century has produced." This edition is Stravinsky's own reduction for solo piano. Originally intended for Ballets Russe rehearsals, this arrangement has evolved into a popular and challenging part of the piano repertoire. It also offers an excellent way for listeners to follow this complex work and to fully appreciate its brilliance.

It was long ago and far away that a French governess told her little pupils a wonderful story called "Beauty and the Beast, " about a pretty girl's love for a gentle but physically repulsive creature. That charming eighteenth-century tale of the transformative power of love has enchanted generations of readers and listeners to the present day. The story's fame has spread around the world in recent years via a classic animated film and a popular Broadway musical. Now this new edition of "Beauty and the Beast" will continue to captivate young audiences with its timeless appeal. In addition to the title tale, this volume includes five stories by Charles Perrault, the noted French author and compiler of fairy tales. These include "Blue Beard, " the gripping legend of a curious bride and her ladykiller husband; "Puss in Boots, " in which a destitute miller's son trusts in his clever cat and receives a royal reward; and "Little Tom Thumb, " the adventures of a fellow who's small of stature but ample in wit. A pair of Perrault's lesser known tales are also included: "The Fairies, "a fable of kindness rewarded, and "Ricky of the Tuft, " an engaging story of the relative nature of beauty and wisdom. Brimming with humor, drama, and fantasy, these six stories appear here in complete and unabridged form, each with an original full-page illustration by Kristine Bollinger.
