Summary

An illustrated collection of re-tellings of tales which have inspired music for orchestras.

Once Upon a Tune brings you six wonderful stories from many lands, all of which inspired great music. You can battle trolls with Peer Gynt if you go In The Hall of the Mountain King; grapple with a magic broom in The Sorcerer's Apprentice; meet the evil Witch of the North in The Swan of Tuonela; sail the seven seas with Sinbad the Sailor in Scheherazade; be a prince disguised as a bee in The Flight of the Bumblebee; and become a fearless hero in William Tell.
The stories are excitingly told and stunningly illustrated by James Mayhew, who is famous for bringing live classical music, art and storytelling to families across the UK.
There are also Musical Notes where you can find out more about the stories and music, plus James's recommended recordings to download and listen to.
