A russian fairy tale
It is a fairy tale composed on my own text like a fantasy over themes of the russian fairy tales, with their frequent characters: Ivan the fool, Baba Yaga the forest witch, the dragon Zmei Gorynytch, Koshei the immortal and the swan queen. Ivan’s fate is the way of a russian soul, his encounters, weaknesses and sins. You can decide on the way this fairy tales ends.
This musical fairy tale is split in two parts: a narration with musical themes and a suite of original compositions for piano. A beautiful introduction to the Russian culture and mythology ! Story told in French and in Russian, accompanied with 6 original Russian illustrations.
Piano composition and interpretation (16 mins.), Russian narration (28 mins.): Veronika Kuzmina Raibaut. French narration (28 mins.): Roxane Lebrun. Illustrations : Nikolai Gavritskov. Recording, making (12 pages booklet): Jean-Michel Raibaut. © Copyright Arte Vero 03/2012, all rights reserved.
