These two novelties by Spanish composers, El soldadito de Plomo (The Tin Soldier) by Emilio Aragón and las Fábulas de Lafontaine (La Fontaine’s Fables) by Xavier Benguerel, join the ranks of such notable titles and famous classics in the children’s repertoire as Peter and the Wolf by Prokoviev and the Story of Babar by Francisc Poulenc, already on sale.

The Orquesta de Cadaqués Ensemble plays all the musical parts, conducted this time by Emilio Aragón and Philippe Entremont respectively. The narrative counts on the invaluable cooperation of some of the most versatile actors on the national scene, who took part in this project thrilled by the possibility of addressing such a demanding audience as children: Javier Cámara and Gonzalo de Castro join Tristán Ulloa and Leonor Watling, who have already participated in previous recordings.

Posted by Leticia Martin on January 19, 2009  |  1 Comment

El soldadito de plomo, by Emilio Aragón, comes to life thanks to an animation. Just as it did with “La flor mas grande del mundo” (The biggest flower in the world), Continental Producciones has created a short animated film using plasticine, set in the Toy Museum in Allariz (Orense) and where Andersen’s story is told from a new angle.

This animation is fruit of twelve months’ work and 18,000 shots. For the voices of the characters Continental Producciones and Algarabía Animación have chosen actors of the calibre of Manuel Manquiña (the “Cigarrón”) and Luis Piedrahita (the Soldier).

logo de peraladaThe Perelada Festival embarks on a new venture with a firm commitment to attracting new audiences by bringing classical music in a broad range of formats to children. The Cadaqués Orchestra Ensemble, which has always had among its goals to educate people about music, will be performing “El soldadito de Plomo” (The Steadfast Tin Soldier) composed by Emilio Aragón, based on the tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

With great descriptive and dramatic power, Aragón’s music for this universal tale takes us through the story, narrated by the actress Rosa Novell, of the adventures of a toy soldier in love with a ballerina.

The narration is in Catalan, with Jaime Martín conducting the arrangement by Albert Guinovart. The Catalan version is available from Tritó as part of our La Corxera Juganera collection and will soon be out in Spanish with narration by Javier Cámara.
