Two new titles have been added to the Solfa la Redonda collection
of CDs for children, which maintains its policy of motivating and encouraging children to get to know classical music, this time counting on the voices of Gonzalo de Castro
and Javier Cámara
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.
