Talespin - Musical Tales for Big and Small (follow this link to visit our dedicated homepage)

a con­cept from Anna Lea Ste­fáns­dót­tir & Chan­da Van­der­Hart

Tale­spin, an orig­i­nal idea of Anna Lea Ste­fans­dot­tír (Vio­lin) and Chan­da Van­der­Hart (Piano), is a com­bi­na­tion of sto­ry­telling, music and graph­ic design for mul­ti­me­dia con­cert events.

The group com­mis­sions var­i­ous com­posers to set rel­a­tive­ly unknown fairy tales or myths from around the world to orig­i­nal music. In a con­cert for­mat, the tale is nar­rat­ed by a speak­er, and accom­pa­nied by live music as well as pro­ject­ed visu­als, also com­mis­sioned and designed espe­cial­ly for Tale­spin.

The pro­gram, cur­rent­ly avail­able in either Ger­man or Eng­lish, is some­thing com­plete­ly unique and high­ly enter­tain­ing for audi­ences of all ages. Through­out each Tale­spin per­for­mance, the mul­ti­me­dia nature of this cul­tur­al event cap­ti­vates chil­dren while par­ents enjoy high qual­i­ty clas­si­cal com­po­si­tions.
