Program Notes

A Fairy Tale is a bright and simple piece. Written in a dream-like spirit, the music evokes these little mischievous beings who frequently materialise suddenly in the heart of the forest or other dark places, always holding a magic wand that generates a trail of sparks. The etymology of the word “fairy” reveals a notion of spellbinding or magic, but fairies are generally represented as tiny, fantastic female creatures, beautiful women who enjoy supernatural powers and intercede on our behalf, for better or for worse, but always in an innocent way. Some legends say that they are treacherous and kidnap children with the aim of creating a fairy line of descent with human features. However, those ardent sentries of nature form the link that unites the visible and the invisible worlds: thus were fairytales born.

May this work make visible the enchanting imaginary world that exists inside every one of us.
