Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jeffrey Stock's 'Lulie the Iceberg' is a kindred spirit to Prokofiev's 'Peter and the Wolf.' Stock's music enhances the children's story by Her Imperial Highness Princess Hisako of Takamado. Her Majesty's tale tells the story of an innocent and brave iceberg named Lulie as he embarks on an ocean journey. Stock's music calls on some renowned soloists--Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Pamela Frank on violin, Paul Winter on saxophone--and the Orchestra of St. Luke's to portray Lulie and his friends. Actor Sam Waterston narrates the tale with his customary warmth.
'Lulie the Iceberg' is miles ahead of the usual fare presented for children. The music is interesting for listeners both young and old, especially the beautiful work for chorus singing in
Read more Greenlandic. The soloists of course are superb, and Waterston tells the tale in an engaging manner that never patronizes. If you are interested in introducing your child to the world of classical music, there is no better recording available. 'Lulie' will stimulate the hearts and minds of people of all ages. Read less
