Notes and Editorial Reviews

The members of the acclaimed string trio Ensemble Epomeo transform into Auricolae, a fantastical band of minstrels presenting fairytales, folklore, and fables in a two-CD set of new music dramatized via the ageless art of storytelling. More than a dozen parables from around the world fuse traditional allegories with inventive mythical settings, pair timeless legends with new musical scores, and offer original stories whose inspiration stems from the beginning of time. The result is a truly unique synthesis of words and music that is instantly entertaining.

“One cannot help but admire the commitment and educational effort ... the stories are presented with energy and great panache ... clever and very well done.” — Audiophile
