Merregnon: Land of Silence is an original symphonic fairy tale, created for School and Family Concerts. Following in the tradition of timeless classics such as Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals, it features exclusive music by internationally renowned composer Yoko Shimomura, known for her work on multi-million selling video games such as Super Mario RPG, Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy XV.
For Merregnon: Land of Silence, Yoko Shimomura has tailored a melody for each of the story’s characters. Her score demonstrates a lavish diversity of sound and has been penned to complement the various orchestral sections and their soloists.
Says Yoko Shimomura: “It’s a great honour to be asked to compose for an orchestra, and I’m particularly pleased and excited to be involved in the Merregnon: Land of Silence project. Creating something that children and young people will enjoy is always a rewarding challenge, and together with the charming story and beautiful artwork I hope we will inspire a brand new generation of orchestral and classical music fans.”
Merregnon: Land of Silence will take listeners on a magical journey of musical adventures when it premieres in Stockholm, March 9, 2021 at the Konserthuset Stockholm, with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra.
