Notes & Reviews:

Composer Rob Kapilow, one of the most successful and most performed composers on the planet, has turned two of the most famous and iconic Children’s Classics into musical extravaganzas, Polar Express and Dr. Seuss’s Gertrude Fuzz. Joining Mr. Kapilow are international superstars Nathan Gunn, who sings Polar Express, and Isabel Leonard, who sings Gertrude McFuzz. “Kapilow has cornered the market in quality music addressed to children and their families, and has become one of America’s most performed and sought-­-after composers.” (Boston Globe) "The most popular ‘family music’ since Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.” (Boston Globe) “Kalikow is a kind of Bill Nye, the Science Guy for Classical Music.” (Time Out New York) “Nathan Gunn’s singing was beautiful.” (NY Times) “Isabel Leonard has passionate intensity and remarkable vocal beauty.” (Opera News)
