A Is for Oboe: The Orchestra’s Alphabet

By Lera Auerbach (Author), Marilyn Nelson (Author), Thomas Quasthoff (Narrator)

A poet and a composer have creatively teamed up to present the orchestra’s world through verse. This audio version of the picture book combines the deep, expressive voice of Thomas Quasthoff with musical accompaniments to illustrate the instruments and vocabulary for each verse. From the sound of a single instrument to the whole orchestra, the audio presents a much richer version of this book.
