Welcome to Day Four of FIREBIRD WEEK on IPR's Kids Commute - classical music for kids!

This week, we're listening to Igor Stravinsky's ballet combining two Russian fairy tales - the terrible Koschei the Deathless, and the magical Firebird, with wings of flame.

Today, it's The Firebird to the rescue! Prince Ivan, captured by Koschei and his terrible Guardian Monsters, calls on the Firebird for help.
