Quotes & Highlights

  • “A hugely enjoyable undertaking for young and old alike … The piece seems destined to become a classic.” —San Francisco Chronicle
  • “Older children will pick up more of the satirical nuances in the tale, but any young listener is sure to enjoy the animated sounds as Stookey’s score playfully evokes the character of each instrument in turn. Parents, meanwhile, will relish the witty quotations from well-known pieces by Beethoven, Chopin, Stravinsky and others.” —Time Out New York
  • “A grimly humorous detective story … Author Lemony Snicket is an unapologetic champion of classical music, and with Stookey, another San Francisco native, he has created perhaps the best response to the tiresome trope of the death of classical music.” —The Washington Post

In this delightfully wry murder mystery, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone has a musical instrument. But the composer is still dead. Help us solve this musical mystery! Book by Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) and music by Nathaniel Stookey.
