This 'Fairy Tale Suite' is a cycle of pieces very varied in style and – like film music – even their titles suggest a story. From an elf prince to a dream and a sea voyage, then on to a (captive?) princess and a battle with a Cyclops, a feast for mice and then a homecoming, no limits are set to the imagination of the player and listener. The pieces are of easy to medium difficulty. The inclusion of modern musical techniques makes these pieces highly suitable for school and youth music competitions, where pieces from the contemporary repertoire are often preferred. The musical techniques involved should be within the capabilities of every student. Challenging passages are always set in an appealing musical context and never presented as an end in themselves. The Fairy Tale Suite provides attractive pieces for teaching, concerts and competitions.
