2012 Award
Vivaldi's Four Seasons Book and CD
(by Anna Harwell Celenza/ illus. JoAnn E. Kitchel, Charlesbridge $19.99 Score:)

Newest in the author's series of great composer's stories. Ratherthan telling the whole life story, each of the picture books concentrates on a famous composition by a composer. This tells about the Venetian orphanage where Vivaldi taught music to young girls. His fanciful stories did not please the governors and he was sent away. But he returned later with his most memorable composition, the Four Seasons. The author's notes indicate that it is not known for certain when his masterpiece was composed, though it is believed to have been in Mantua, she he worked after leaving the orphanage. Weaving stories to the great music will hopefully open the doors to new listening for another generation.  7 & up.

Age: Early School Years, Later School Years. Award Year: 2012.
