Sands Films Music Room:The Nightingale 40th anniversary

Sands Films Music Room presents the short animation film made in 1980, based on Hans Christian ANDERSEN’s fairy tale and featuring Ludwig van Beethoven’s music.

About this Event

Everyone knows it is Beethoven 250, but it is also Nightingale 40!

40 years ago Sands Films produced this unique animation short. It was only seen on the then new C4 and it was never released on home video …. The film has now been digitised and this presentation will be its first airing in many many years. OLivier Stockman will talk about its production, Hans Christian Andersen and the specially recorded Beethoven music recorded for this production..
