Product Description

CD Description

A wonderful and magical retelling of Roald Dahls Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs recorded in 1998 with new original music by Eleanor Alberga and until now never commercially released. The ideal Christmas present! Read by the legendary Danny DeVito, along with one of Britains most adored actresses Joanna Lumley, and the irrepressible Griff Rhys-Jones, this recording was made to benefit Roald Dahls Marvellous Childrens Charity which since 1991 has raised more than £5.5 million to help children living with serious blood or brain illnesses. Supported by a marketing campaign in conjunction with the Roald Dahl Foundation

Review

Snow White is a wonderful piece. The music is a bit like Roald Dahl's words - thrilling, exciting, funny and sometimes a little bit frightening. I am hugely proud to have been involved in this recording, which helps raise money for a marvellously worthwhile cause --Joanna Lumley

Peter Ash conducts a vigorous performance which is fully alive to the score's angularity and bold colourings.I can imagine this CD being thoroughly relished by young families listening together, and it was certainly worth releasing. Performance **** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine,Mar'12

5.0 out of 5 stars Alberga's Snow White is HOT!!!!! 7 Feb 2012
By Eydichi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This 2011 release of a much earlier recording is Eleanor Alberga's first orchestral work, and it is simply beautiful! Alberga's musical adaptation is great for children and adults of any age. Music directors should begin to program this along with Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for all ages 2 Jan 2012
By Jim D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
British author Roald Dahl left behind a children's charity fund which, among its other fundraising efforts, has commissioned a series of musicalizations of his works for the stage and concert hall. Recorded in 1998, this performance of Snow White is only now being released. The text is adapted from Dahl's verses, so it is a mix of straightforward narrative and rhyme. The music itself is actually a suite of dances, with some incidental stuff to accompany the narration. It's contemporary in style, but still family-friendly. The smallest children may not be so taken with this, but those with any appreciation of music will find much to enjoy. Certainly, the performers seem to be enjoying themselves, especially Joanna Lumley, chewing on the scenery as the wicked stepmother. The playing time is short (under 45 minutes), but it's hard to know what the filler might have been; it's probably best to have it as it is, without any padding. An infectious performance all around, in a clear recording: good fun.
