Sounding Fairy Tales

This new concert series for children is dedicated to cultural exchange. From each of our five native countries, a fairy tale was chosen and set to music by a young composer of the respective country. In these concerts, music and narration go hand in hand, the fairy tales being read by Fränzi Frick and Barbara Altwegg.

The score for the Japanese fairy tale, “Issun Boshi”, was written by composer Hiromasa Aizawa. The Swiss fairy tale “Tredeschin” was set to music by children within the framework of Andreas Nick’s studio for children’s composition (Zurich Music School and Conservatorium). These two successful performances will be followed by both a Hungarian and a Taiwanese fairy tale.
