Catchy contemporary music for children performed by an orchestra is a rarity.
New Orchestral Hits 4 Kids aims to open ears, new and old to the wonderful sounds of the orchestra. The songs are written, arranged and performed by two highly accomplished musicians, Mr. E. aka Erik Johannessen of Jaga Jazzist fame and Me aka Martin Hagfors an acclaimed songwriter, artist and lyricist. The orchestra is the Norwegian Radio Orchestra directed by Anders Eljas of Chess and ABBA fame and by the eloquent Ingar Bergby. The orchestra is augmented by the internationally renowned Sami artist, Mari Boine, The Norwegian Girls Choir and percussionist Heming Valebjørg of The Oslo Symphony Orchestra. Enjoy!
