Description: Titled "For Children Young and Old", this 72-minute collection of programmatic and pedagogical pieces contains 64 separate items - evidence, if it were needed, that Kabalevsky could produce bright, cheerful and charming pieces seemingly without end (although you might not want to listen to them all at once). Kirsten Johnson (piano).
