Trills and Dragon Ears

Family concert with texts by Lennart Hellsing.

Is it possible to see music, and hear a picture? Yes: if you listen carefully in Trills and Dragon Ears, the double bass can be heard growling like a bear and the oboe gets a cobra to dance in Samarkand. 

Lennart Hellsing is one of Sweden's most beloved children’s book authors and his creations include Krakel Spektakel (“Noisy Spectacle”), Kusin Vitamin (“Cousin Vitamin”), Bagar Bengtsson (“Bengtsson the Baker”), Petronella från Plaskeby (“Petronella from Plaskeby”) and Herr Gurka (“Mr. Cucumber”).

Hellsing’s wonderful story Trills and Dragon Ears helps us to become familiar with the many different instruments of the symphony orchestra. In the verses, we encounter everything from a knight’s tower to expansive beaches, dragon’s caves and the seasons, all set to the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy and Alfvén. Trills and Dragon Ears is a wonderfully playful presentation by the orchestra. The narrator is Ayla Kabaca.
