THE TORTOISE & THE HARE

Narrated by Belinda Stohner

Piano: Oscar Bustillo

About the Story

The Tortoise & the Hare is a fable about a tortoise that uses his wit and ingenuity to win a race against an arrogant hare who ridicules him. Like many fables by Aesop, the story is brief and comes with a moral.

Hobo's version of The Tortoise & the Hare is paired with Ludwig van Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata No. 14 in C# minor. The Tortoise is represented by the slow melodies from the first movement and the Hare is portrayed by music from the quick and intense third movement.
