Musical Fairytales by Hans Christian Andersen

Vigga Bro
Odense Symphony Orchestra
Jan Wagner, conductor

Fuzzy, composer
Finn Høffding, composer
Sven Erik Werner, composer

Hans Christian Andersen and music is a large and colourful chapter in the history of Danish and international culture. Even early in Andersen's career Danish and soon also foreign composers vied with one another to set his poems to music and to work his tales into musicodramatic form. This CD presents three contemporary and very different musical readings of Andersen's classics. The shared focus of the composers is their fascination with Andersen's mastery of form and pithy narrative style.
