Ugly Duckling

“The Ugly Duckling” is a part of a big show in the Copenhagen Royal Opera celebrating H.C. Andersen’s 200 years anniversary.

The acclaimed Swedish director Lars Rudolfsson had directed the show, and the music was written by Savannah Agger and Elias Faingersh.

 

Excerpt of the review on 200 years H.C. Andersen’s celebration show at the Royal Danish Opera

By Jens Andersen, Berlingske Tidningen

(Among the guests of the show : HM Queen of Denmark, Crown Princess of Sweden, Premier minister of Denmark, Harry Belafonte, Roger More)

….a trombone solo on stage slowly uncovers H.C. Andersen’s musical universe for us. … according to absolute majority of the public it was the highest point of the show! What a genius sparkle of the H.C. Andersen’s most intimate nerve!

 

Powerful sounds filled up the hall

By A. Somarova, ”Gaseta” Russia

“Solo piece on H.C. Andersen’s favourite novel “Ugly Duckling” performed by Russian born Elias Faingersh. With touching lonely cry addressed to the sky, public, orchestra. Plying on different parts of trombone he receives orchestra’s cruel response.

Than trombone became whole and got plugged in to a set of loop machine and effect processor.

Powerful sounds filled up the hall, Majestic bird lifting to the sky; we can hear wind in the tree crowns, two seconds of silence and than explosions of Applause.”
