Publisher's Summary

Katarina, a young violinist, arrives at the Pietà orphanage where Antonio Vivaldi was music director. Aided by Giovanni the gondolier, she searches throughout Venice for clues to her mysterious past.

Over two dozen excerpts, including Vivaldi’s best-loved "Four Seasons" (with real sound effects), guitar piccolo and trumpet concertos. Also featured are many of the violin pieces played by young violinists today.

We love the Classical Kids Stories BUT

I am extremely disappointed that Amazon felt the need to pull these stories from Amazon music and add them to Audible. The only difference other than the charge for the "book" is terrible chapter number interruptions in random places in the story. The stories are great, but the need to now charge for them just for the added horrible interruption is despicable.

One of my Childhood favorites!

One of my favorites from when I was a kid. The only issue that I have is the guy that does the chapter interruptions. He's monotone and it really clashes with the story because sometimes he interrupts in the middle of a word or sentence. The original version didn't have that, it just told the story.
