Sparky's Magic piano might be seen as a modern fairy tale. It certainly deals with themes of how intoxicating Fame can be for those unprepared for it.
When a magical piano offers Sparky the chance to get fame and recognition by feigning to play for him, it seems almost too good to be true. Before long, Sparky is off jet-setting to exotic locales and charming his audiences with his "musical talent" on the piano. The path to celebrity hood soon goes to his head, and he becomes like one of the celebrity kids now domineering our tabloids today.
The key delights of this little animated feature are the wonderful classical pieces from the likes of Beethoven, Chopin and Bach. I was blown away by the lilting melodies from the Masters of old, and like the audience in the cartoon, you too will be swaying to the music before long.
