Hans Christian Andersen StorySongs
Composer/performer Roger Latzgo will bring his musical settings of stories by Hans Christian Andersen. Latzgo, who first learned music at his accordion-playing grandfather's knee, continued his formal studies at Rutgers College and the Mason Gross School of the Arts. For Scanfest 2023, Roger presents Hans Christian Andersen StorySongs. Songs include his musical settings of "The Ugly Duckling", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Little Match Girl" and others.
Among the newer StorySongs is Latzgo's musical version of a lesser-known Hans Christian Andersen story sometimes translated as "The Millennium". In it, Andersen imagines what travel in Europe will be like one thousand years from his own time. The master storyteller spins it with uncanny accuracy. Latzgo makes it contemporary with a tempo di rap setting.
Roger is on a musical mission: to enhance understanding and deep appreciation of Hans Christian Andersen through the power of music. We know that ScanFest audiences will love joining him on this journey.
