ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beethoven's Wig takes on the greatest piano masterpieces as they sing along to Richard Perlmutter's witty, irreverent and humorous lyrics set to the works of Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Brahms, Schumann and Debussy, as well as modern masters Stravinsky, Schoenberg and Cowell. Also included are Perlmutter's hysterical renditions of The "Entertainer" by Joplin, and the famous "Chopsticks". Beethoven's Wig: Sing Along Piano Classics was recorded at the legendary Village Recorders in Los Angeles and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center. As on all Beethoven's Wig albums, Perlmutter handles the lead vocals backed by an all-star cast including Elin Carlson, Jennifer Barnes, Jonathan Mack and Michael Geiger. Noted conductor, vocalist and pianist Grant Gershon plays piano on all selections.

Beethoven's Wig is one of the most honored series in the history of family entertainment. It has won a record number of awards including 4 Grammy Award Nominations. Filled with fact and fancy about each piece and its composer, each Sing Along Piano Classic provides a fun foundation for classical music that will last a lifetime. As a bonus, the instrumental version of each piece is included without lyrics.

"It's a wonderful CD, especially for those of you who love classical music and if you've yet to share the greats with your children, this would be the perfect introduction! Richard Perlmutter is a musical genius and his humor and deep passion for these great masterpieces has brought them back to life for these younger generations to see how exquisite they once were, and are again." - Outnumbered 3-1"

"Parents need to know that the Beethoven's Wig series has won countless awards for its music, which introduces kids to the classics in an exciting way -- with words! This CD includes funny, kid-friendly lyrics that truly enhance the familiar piano melodies. Parents will enjoy the music as much as their kids and appreciate the refresher course on musicians such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Debussy." - Common Sense Media

"Beethoven's Wig: Sing Along Piano Classics is a unique, family-friendly pairing of classical piano music and catchy lyrics. Part of an award-winning and Grammy-nominated series, Beethoven's Wig: Sing Along Piano Classics is a wonderful introduction to the joys of classical music; beautifully performed. Highly recommended." - Midwest Book Review
