Meet the Little Prince

A music lesson from the cycle Music Told in Tales of Sand for children 4-15 years

Valery Gergiev for children

The concert-performance Meet the Little Prince, based on the famous fairy-tale novella by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, is a combination of jazz arrangements of music by French impressionist composers, the text of the fairy-tale and sand animation.

Sand animation is one of the most amazing forms of visual art. Before the very eyes of the audience, the sand artist will create pictures out of sand; the sand is placed in layers on glass – this results in the stunning images that gently flow one into another, and with the assistance of a projector the image is shown on a screen.

The fairy-tales will be narrated and drawn by:
Olga Piccolo, script author, a music historian
Oxana Kalinko, an artist with the sand animation studio

Denis Nechaev (vibraphone)
Dmitry Nechaev (percussion)
Polina Levanina (piano)
