Notes & Reviews:

Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale universe seems tailor-made for musical treatment. This CD presents a handful of works, all with their origins in Andersen's art. While the Romantic works on the recording were composed during Andersen's lifetime in close collaboration with the writer himself, the Late Romantic and more modern works were created with Andersen's immortal tales as their poetic source.
