THE FAIRY TALES
“Jack & the Beanstalk”
Will carefree, quick-witted Jack dare to trick the huge & hideous ogre & find his own true path in life?
Follow Jack’s quest, accompanied by heroic music borrowed from the inimitable Ludwig van Beethoven.
Inspired by an English folktale, published in various versions by the Brothers Grimm & Andrew Lang.

“Rapunzel’s Braid”
Is Mother Mae-mae really a witch? Will Rapunzel be allowed to grow up? Will Prince Ruffino choose adventure—or love?
This magical tale of love & self-discovery is set to original songs by Genevieve Scandone, lavishly arranged & with incidental music composed by Gizem Gokoglu.
Inspired by a German folktale as published by the Brothers Grimm.

“The Pig Prince”
Will cheery Pig Prince Reggie find acceptance as a pig—or true love as a man?
In this rollicking tale, Prince Reggie sings his way through his adventures to a Baroque sonata by Arcangelo Corelli.
Inspired by an Italian folktale, also published in Italian as “The Pig King” by Giovanni Francesco Straparola & in French as “Prince Marcassin” by Madame d’Aulnoy.

THE SILLY SONGS
“Running, Running.” A mad dash to Mozart’s overture to “The Magic Flute.”

“Birdie ABCs.” Tongue-twisting bird-watching to Mozart’s familiar tune.

“Swingin’ Frère Jacques.” A syncopated version of the old favorite about sleepy John—& his wide-awake friends. Plus a make-up-your-own verse.

“Weather Medley.” Hear the wind, play in the snow, see the fog, splash in the rain, & warm up in the sun. By John Shoemaker & Gizem Gokoglu.

“Hoedown on Old MacDonald’s Farm.” Animal noises galore!

“I Don’t Smell.” A bit of silliness to the melody of “Taps.” By Jessica Danser.

“I Had a Frog, Part 2.” Ten ingenious animal friends—plus a verse to sing about your own zany beast. By Jessica Danser & Genevieve Scandone. Arrangement by Shay Salhov & Gizem Gokoglu.

Get worn out “Running, Running” while singing a little Mozart opera. Learn the names of some strange birds along with the alphabet in “Birdie ABCs.” Sing along with “I Don’t Smell” & “Hoedown on Old MacDonald’s Farm.” Hear nature come to life in “Weather Medley.” Make up your own verses to “Swingin’ Frère Jacques” & “I Had a Frog, Part 2.”

We had lots of fun creating this album, & we hope you & your children or grandchildren will have lots of fun listening to its whimsical wordplay & maybe singing along! By the way, the frog on the cover is Mike, from “I Had a Frog” (“his name was Mike...he told me once he’d ridden a bike”). For the cover, he dressed up as Rapunzel. Silly Frog!
