Editorial Reviews

New Contemporary Classical Music from American Costa Rican composer James Nathaniel Holland in his masterful ballet adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale, "The Snow Queen." A performance CD that can be used to dance to or just to listen for enjoyment. Here is the entire Prologue, First Act and the first half of Act II.

Highlights are The Dance of the Evil Snow Sprite and the Distorted Mirror, Innocence and Kai and Gerde's Special Friendship, The Waltz of the Roses, The Waltz of the Snowflakes (Snowbees), Gerde Morns Kai's Death, The Suite of the Lady of Spring (Tale of the Tiger Lillies, The Dream of the Morning Glories, The Tale of the Snowdrops, and the Hyacinth's Tale), and The Waltz of the Summer Palace.

Ballet Synopsis: Evil Snow Sprites make a mirror that reflects all that is mean and evil. When it shatters, its splinters drift to the far corners of the world.

Gerde and Kai are two poor children who live in Copenhagen in the early 19th Century. They live innocently with their parents and Grandmother and tend a rooftop rose garden.

One winter night Kai meets the Snow Queen and a splinter from the mirror enters his eye. The Snow Queen returns and abducts Kai.

Although accepted as dead, Gerde deeply feels otherwise and begins her quest to find her friend, traveling through the four seasons, sometimes beautiful and sometimes frightening.

The Lady of Spring takes her as an addition to her fantastical garden filled with tales and dreams of the flowers who dwell there. But when Gerde sees the rose on Spring's bonnet she wakes from her enchantment. Her tears spring back the roses who tell her Kai is not dead. She flees from the garden.

Gerde grows up in the wilderness and a crow says
that he has seen Kai at the Palace of the Queen of Summer. They hurry there to find a magnificent ball in progress.

This first CD ends with the waltz of the Summer Palace.

Part 1 of a 2 CD set, this CD can also enhance a dramatic reading of the story, a theatrical production, movie or be used in an animation of it.
Piano Vocal Score (Orchestral Reduction) sold separately.
