Macabre and alluring, fairy tales live on
As you might expect, Daedalus has a strong contingent of beautifully illustrated fairy tale items, including the old (Fairy Gold: A Book of Old English Fairy Tales and A Little Box of Books: Fairy Tales, Nursery Rhymes, Songs), the new (My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me: Forty New Fairy Tales), and the "Grimm." And don't miss the Nash Ensemble's recording of Schumann's Fairy Tales for clarinet, viola and piano!
Bernadette Peters sings "Children Will Listen," the finale of Into the Woods, at a concert in Royal Festival Hall London.
Do you have a favorite story, storyteller (Grimm, Andersen, Perrault?), or illustrator?
