Sad Stories:

 

 

Set in sleepy Gerola in the Italian Alps, Il fungo sirena (The Mermaid Mushroom) chronicles the summer adventures of children untouched by the demands of modern, urban living. The story is seen from the point of view of a child - that stage of life in which the senses are heightened to a point where an everyday occurrence can seem like a mesmerising event.

With flute solos from internationally-renowned flautist Nancy Ruffer, François Evans has composed a charming, sweeping score.
