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.
