Glen Roven's violin concerto, THE RUNAWAY BUNNY, provides the soundtrack for three children's stories. Ittai Shapira's superb violin work is complemented by the playing of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. But, most importantly, the music makes a colorful sonic landscape for the narration, provided by Brooke Shields (THE RUNAWAY BUNNY) and Stephen Fry (PADDINGTON BEAR'S FIRST CONCERT and TUBBY THE TUBA). The combined effect will delight music lovers, parents, and children alike.
