Product Description

Three delightfully dramatic compositions take you on a musical tour of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved tales. Expressly written for the ballet of the same name, Fairy Tales, produced in 2006, this suite is comprised of three segments: 'Inchellina (Thumbellina Variations)', 'Red Shoes', and 'The Little Mermaid'. Considerably more vibrant than popularized mainstream versions of the fairy tales, these pieces provide enjoyment for all ages while still cleaving to the intense magic and moral force of the original tales. This symphonic storytelling at its best is a must-have collection for fans of Hans Christian Andersen, and for young and old music lovers worldwide.

By Tajalli Moonstar - Published on Amazon.com
Ryan Young From CD Baby wrote about FAIRY TALES:
Jeffrey Fisher's press materials calls him a "Renaissance Man," and it is true that he is a painter with museum exhibits, a poet with five books, and a t'ai chi instructor (with a philosophy and instructional book published). As a musician he has six previous new age meditational-and-healing-oriented CDs. But now comes a completely different recording. Fairy Tales is a contemporary classical project, all composed by Fisher. The sounds are that of a symphony orchestra (and parts thereof), but he created it al on synthesizer (which is the cost-effective way to do this type of classical music these days). The music was originally commissioned to score an adult and children ballet called "Hans Christian Andersen" that showcased three of this writer's most-famous children's stories: "Thumbellina," "Red Shoes" and "The Mermaid," all of which have had movies made of them over the years. The music works as neo-classical. Fisher makes it sound so easy, you wonder why more current-day composers don't try their hand at orchestral music. If you are tired of classical music's big three B's (Beethoven, Bach and Brahms), you might want to try this out as a contemporary counterpart. Or if you like the idea of new classical music for children (or families to enjoy together), then check this out.

HASH(0x9d2fc87c) out of 5 stars NEW AGE CLASSICAL AWARD WINNING ALBUM Aug. 24 2007
By Tajalli Moonstar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album by Jeffrey Fisher just won the PARENTING MEDIA AWARD. I love Jeffrey's Music. It's great for the young at heart. We are all children and we all love Fairy tales. Jeffrey tells the stories of "Thumbellina," "The Little Mermaid" and "The Red Shoes" with his instrumental music in such a wonderful way, that it is a joy just to listen or to use his music for "story telling" and read those fairy tales again for yourself or to others, (to children at all ages...) I also like Jeffrey's newest CD Triumph of the Spirit which was inspired by visionary paintings of Taos artist Charles Collins
