Hans Christian Andersen: how did his tales inspire composers?

Music can communicate feelings and atmospheres more directly than words and is able to make the unreal spring to life – the natural companion to imagination and fantasy. Myths and folktales have always attracted composers, especially the Romantic composers in the Romantic era; but the stories of Hans Christian Andersen have had a special allure for musicians, which endures even today.

‘The Emperor Has No Clothes’ (with apologies to Hans Christian Andersen)

Once upon a time, there was an Emperor, The Donald, so exceedingly fond of himself that he spent all his time seeking attention. He spent no time reviewing his soldiers, reading legislation or intelligence reports. He wanted only to watch TV and was happiest when people said good things about him, even if those things weren’t true. He loved tweeting his every thought to his loyal subjects and truth mattered not.
