Editor reviews

The Brothers Grimm’s classic tale follows four aging farm animals, no longer useful to their masters, as they set out to form a troop of musicians. Jimcin Recordings’ ensemble cast delivers a colorful and animated performance, rife with memorable character acting. Children are treated to the mournful mew of an elderly feline, incapable of catching mice in her old age, and the crackly crow of a rusty rooster, in danger of being turned into chicken soup. On the road to Bremen, the farmyard friends run across a gang of crooks. The rollicking, ridiculous barnyard bust that ensues proves you’re only as old as you feel. Featuring playful voice acting and steady pacing, "The Bremen Town Musicians" is sure to captivate and entertain young listeners.

Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm are among the best known storytellers from Europe. In addition to the Bremen Town Musicians, some of their most famous tales as Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel.In this delightful tale, three animals who have been cast out by their masters, a dog, a cat, a rooster and a donkey decide to form a musical group together.Their first "concert" turns out to be not what they expeced when they run into a gang of criminals.

american robot voices

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A good cast of English actors to do justice to a lovely tale

How could the performance have been better?

The performance was robotic and pronunciation was an appalling American version which spoiled the classic tale.

Any additional comments?

Please make it clear before purchase if the audio is English or American
