    Win My First Classical Music Book and CD 

    This week, Classical Kids and are giving you the chance to win a copy of 'My First Classical Music Book'. It’s a super guide to classical music - the composers, the instruments and some of the places you might find music. It’s beautifully illustrated with lots of fun facts and quizzes, and there’s a gorgeous CD that accompanies it which contains the excerpts mentioned in the book, including music by Mozart, Saint-Saens, Beethoven, Brahms and many more. We have five copies up for grabs and to win, just answer this question: 

    Camille Saint-Saens wrote a suite of music that describes animals and their movements. Is it called: 

    a) The Carnival of the Animals
    b) Romeo and Juliet
    c) The Nutcracker

    Email the correct answer with your name and full postal address to by Friday December 19th and we'll announce the winners here. And for lots more great albums in the Naxos range for younger listeners, visit the children's section of their website.
