School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-5-This worthy successor to the first Beethoven's Wig (June, 2002, p. 74) has 11 more great classical pieces infused with comedic lyrics to hook listeners and help them remember the name of each composer and piece. Richard Perlmutter is also the brains (concept, lyrics, and lead vocals) behind this second compendium. With assistance from several wonderful operatic vocalists and several orchestras and ensembles such as the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra, the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, and many others, this album features high-quality musical professionalism. The silliness begins with a rider "Stuck in the Saddle Again" because his horse won't move ("Light Cavalry Overture," Suppe), then continues with "Sing Verdi Very Loud" ("La donna e mobile" from Rigoletto, Verdi). The other entries include "It's the Same Every Verse" ("In the Hall of the Mountain King" from Peter Gynt Suite, Grieg); "Musical B's" to learn about Beethoven, Bach, and Brahms ("Hungarian Dance #5," Brahms); "Don't Play That Violin" ("Violin Concerto #2," Paganini); "Schubert's Trout" ("Trout Quintet," Schubert); "Dvorak the Czechoslovak" ("Humoresque #7," Dvorak); "A Fan of Chopin" ("Prelude 7 Op. 28," Chopin); "Please Do Not Tease the Viennese" ("Blue Danube Waltz," Strauss); "It's Spring!" ("Spring" from The Four Seasons, Vivaldi); and "Wow What a Wedding Cake" ("Wedding March" from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Mendelssohn). Finally, all 11 pieces are repeated without the silly lyrics. Libraries that own the first album will want to add this one to their collections.-Beverly Bixler, San Antonio Public Library, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
