MUSIC OF THE WEEK ~ WEEK BEGINNING 30TH MARCH 2020
The Flight of the Bumblebee by the Russian Romantic Era composer Rimsky-Korsakov.
There are lots of other videos on YouTube featuring different instruments playing this piece. This link is for an orchestral version.
You could talk to your child about the music. Did they like it? Why/why not? What instruments can they hear/recognise? Does the music remind them of anywhere? How does it make them feel? What is the tempo (speed) like? Can they tap the steady beat along to it?
For this particular piece, what does the composer do to imitate the sound of a bumblebee?
