About this product
- Description(Includes an audio CD.) Maximus Musicus, a little mouse wandering around Reykjavik in the cold, takes shelter by chance in a concert hall. What an interesting and adventurous turn his life has suddenly taken! There he experiences many strange and funny events as well as some wonderful and moving sounds as the orchestral musicians warm up, tune their instruments, rehearse, and finally play the pieces in concert. The book is illustrated with humorous and endearing images, and read aloud with wit and feeling by Stella Arman on an accompanying audio CD. The Iceland Symphony Orchestra plays music carefully chosen to suit the young audience: Ravel's Bolero, a Fanfare and some galloping encores as well as Maxi's own catchy song.
