Product Details


Inspired and wildly imaginative, Beethoven's Wig: Sing Along Piano Classics are zany stick-in-your-head lyrics set to some of the greatest masterpieces of classical music. Written by Richard Perlmutter, each piece is filled with fact and fancy about the world's most notable composers and their masterpieces, opening a door to serious music in a way that's fun. This collection contains all 13 songs from the Beethoven's Wig: Piano Classics recording, which is included with the book. As a bonus, the CD also includes an instrumental version of each piece without lyrics. The Beethoven's Wig series of recordings has won 46 awards, including four Grammy Award nominations for Best Music Album for Children.
