it was amazing
Read in February, 2010

I'd heard about this at a recent college audition, and from the descriptions (which mostly consisted of hinting at a part, and then expressing shared sentiment about how awesome it was) my curiosity was naturally piqued. Being a musician myself, and being familiar with the various members of the orchestral family and their demeanors, I especially appreciated this gem.
It's good enough as-is, but it's improved immensely with the included disk. The first nine tracks are the author narrating it in such a way that only Snicket can, accompanied by the San Francisco Symphony, who play the parts of the instruments in question. By far listening to this fantastic combination made my day. It would be a sin for any musician or music fan with a sense of humor not to listen to and/or read it.
