Kodaly wrote an opera in which the main character, a soldier called Hary Janos, describes his heroic adventures, which are exaggerated or simply not true. Kodaly used some of the music from the opera in an instrumental work called The Hary Janos Suite. Viennese Musical Clock is one of the movements in this suite. This handout for the teacher contains suggestions on how to use the music in the classroom.
