Album Summary

>Kantelinen, Tumoas : The Snow Queen, ballet suite for orchestra
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

With The Snow Queen the Finnish National Ballet scored a hit. This success was due not only to Andersen's wonderful story and its brilliant staging but also to the music of composer Tuomas Kantelinen. He says he wanted 'to write music that is melodic, beautiful and accessible, as its principal function is to put viewers of all ages into a cheerful Christmas mood. It is a deliberate nod towards the tradition of Christmas ballets for the whole family, such as Nutcracker. I had a great deal of fun creating character dance pastiches that illustrate the conceptions that people have of the musical styles of various countries.'

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
This opulent suite from [Kantelinen's] recent Christmas ballet also features chunks of easy listening. Splendid performance and recording but the music wilts.
