The concert performance Meet the Little Prince after the famous parable-story by de Antoine de Saint-Exupéry combines the music of French impressionist composers in jazz, the text of the fable and animation in sand.
Sand animation is one of the most amazing kinds of the applied arts. The artist creates a painting in sand right before the eyes of an audience as if etching glass. In this way miraculous images are created that flow freely from one to the next and, with the assistance of the projector, are conveyed onto a screen.
The fairy-tales will be narrated and drawn by:
Olga Piccolo, Director of the Piccolo Children’s Music Lecture-Hall, music psychologist, music historian and storyteller
Oxana Kalinko, an artist with the SandARTist sand animation studio of Marina Sosina
The Chizkik Jazz Quartet comprising:
Alexei Chizhik (vibraphone)
Sergei Tarusin (piano)
Viktor Savich (bass guitar)
Pyotr Mikheyev (percussion)
Musical composition and production by Olga Piccolo
The performance lasts 50 minutes
