Presto Mambo

A concert about the music of the Americas takes an unexpected turn when Max — an energetic but impulsive young boy — makes his way onto the stage to help the Orchestra. Soon Max is on a whirlwind adventure that takes him from the concert hall to the vibrant lands of Latin America. With the help of his friend Mambo the dog, the Orchestra, and the audience, Max learns the magic of Latin rhythms.

Beethoven Lives Upstairs

A young boy named Christoph is initially quite upset when the composer Beethoven moves into his late father’s upstairs office. Being completely deaf, Beethoven is neither aware of nor cares about the noise he creates, and Christoph writes his uncle concerned about the “madman” living upstairs. Through correspondence between Christoph and his uncle, we learn about Beethoven as he works on his ninth symphony.
