The members of the acclaimed string trio Ensemble Epomeo transform into Auricolae, a fantastical band of minstrels presenting fairytales, folklore, and fables in a two-CD set of new music dramatized via the ageless art of storytelling. More than a dozen parables from around the world fuse traditional allegories with inventive mythical settings, pair timeless legends with new musical scores, and offer original stories whose inspiration stems from the beginning of time. The result is a truly unique synthesis of words and music that is instantly entertaining.

 

The music is incidental, illustrative, with lots of opportunities for dissonant, clashing sounds, all intended for performance in schools with no previous exposure to classical music. It’s a matter of appealing narratives, cleverly wrapped in contemporary sounds. Or should that be the other way around?”
