    Ferrer Ferran was born in 1966, in Valencia, Spain. When he was only fifteen years old, he had

    already graduated as a pianist and percussionist. He also obtained diplomas in the fields of chamber

    music and accompaniment. He received a degree in composition and conducting from the Royal

    Academy of Music in Great Britain.

    Ferran has performed all over Spain as a soloist, together with chamber ensembles, and accompanyinggreat international soloists. He works with a number of Spanish symphony orchestras. Furthermore,

    he is active as a composer, pianist, conductor, and teacher at the Conservatorio Superior de Msica

    de Valencia in Spain. Ferran specialises in composition and accompaniment.

    He has written many compositions, inter alia for ensemble, choir, chamber orchestra,

    and symphonic wind orchestra the premires have mostly been performed by renowned

    ensembles. Various works from Ferrans pen have been selected as test pieces for important

    contests and festivals. He has won various composition awards and accolades as well, such as the

    one given by Juventudes Musicales de Espaa(Young Musicians of Spain). He also won a number

    of prizes in Corciano (Italy).

    Ferrans compositions have been released by publishing houses in Spain, France, and theNetherlands. Since 2002, his works have been published under the label Ibermsica.

    The Adventures of Pinocchioby Italian author Carlo Collodi is considered a classic of childrens literature and has spawned many

    derivative works of art. Spanish composer Ferrer Ferrans symphonic suite is a musical version of the story. It takes us through

    the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio, a wooden marionette who finally becomes a real boy with a loving heart.

    Collodis novel has received a great deal of critical attention; whether seen as a political allegory or a satire on the strict

    education of the times. Most critics would agree with Italian philosopher Benedetto Croce:The wood out of which Pinocchio is

    carved is humanity itself. It is a fable of human life; a forceful struggle between good and evil, sin and repentance, temptation,

    easiness, generosity, selfishness and altruism.

    This suite consists of four movements:

    I. Pinocchio, Geppetto and the Talking Cricket

    II. The Fairy with Turquoise Hair

    III. The Field of Miracles

    IV. The Land of Toys, The Terrible Dogfish, Finally He Becomes a Boy

    The clarity of scene and rich colours are just spectacular. Ferrans music is dramatic, passionate, intense, sweet, fascinating,

    and reflective. Each movement of the work is accompanied by a short text for a better understanding of the development and

    therefore a better performance.

    keeps a watchful eye on him.

    Bar 80: The Fairy promises him that, on the morrow, he will cease to be a marionette and become a boy.

    IV. The Land of Toys, The Terrible Dogfish, Finally He Becomes a Boy

    Bar 1: This great land is entirely different from any other place in the world. It is a beautiful land; a land full of light.

    Bar 11: It is composed entirely of boys. In the streets, there is such joy, such a racket. All the boys are playing.

    Bar 47: Some boys laugh, shout for joy, whistle with happiness.Bar 53: The squares are filled with canvas theatres, huge carousel horses and big wheels.

    Bar 79: Within a short while, Pinocchio has become a donkey. He is thrown into the sea.

    Bar 98: When the Fairy sees Pinocchio is about to drown, she sends a shoal of big fish to eat away all the donkey flesh.

    Bar 107: They naturally come to the bones or rather, in this case, to the wood.

    Bar 115: Happy to be a wooden puppet again, Pinocchio swims as hard as he can toward a white rock. High on this rock stands a little goat

    beckoning the marionette to come to her.

    Bar 126: He is almost halfway over, when suddenly a sea monster sticks its horrible head out of the water, showing three rows of gleaming teeth.

    Bar 140: Pinocchio swims faster and faster. Alas! He is swallowed by the Terrible Dogfish.

    Bar 148: Wandering through the stomach of the dogfish, he finally meets his beloved father. Oh, Father, dear Father! Have I found you at last?

    Now I shall never, never leave you again!

    Bar 167: Pinocchio and Geppetto try to run out of the dogfishs mouth and dive into the sea, but they fail.

    Bar 175: They finally succeed in escaping on their second attempt. Lifting Geppetto onto his shoulders, Pinocchio swims swiftly away.Bar 182: They reach land as soon as possible.

    Bar 198: After saving his father, and behaving like a good boy, Pinocchio is rewarded. He dreams of his dear Fairy, and wishes she would forgive

    him his mischief.
