Alfred's Music Playing Cards: Classical Composers
Created by Karen Farnum Surmani and Andrew Surmani
These real playing cards are divided into four suits, each representing a different stylistic era of Western music: Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic. Each suit contains 13 composer cards with the composer's likeness, nationality, birth and death dates, brief facts about his or her musical life, and important compositions. Four jokers are included as well, each containing a brief outline of the corresponding musical style period.
