‘Telling Tales’ by NCG composer, Andrew Lowe Watson, inspired by Grimm’s famous tales
Local composer Andrew Lowe Watson spent several years in the 1990s as resident composer to the Brothers Grimm Festival near Frankfurt and he draws on his experience there of writing six musicals based on the Grimms’ tales for a short new work for all performers called ‘Telling Tales’.
In particular, Tabea has won the equivalent of BBC Young Musician of the Year for her singing. Presenting a programme exploring how fairy tales have inspired great music, you will hear music by Gade, a contemporary of Hans Christian Andersen in Denmark and from Schumann and Mendelssohn, contemporaries of the Grimm Brothers in Germany.
