Strings of the Festival Orchestra
Ma mère l’oye (arranged for string quartet by Ernst-Thilo Kalke)
Pavane pour une infante défunte (arranged for string quartet by Wolfgang Birtel)
One thing is already clear: this lunch concert will be fabulous. Not only is a fantastic three-course meal offered to the audience, but it is also possible to dive into the enchanting world of fairy tales between courses along with the four strings of the Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra. Along for the party are, among others, Sleeping Beauty kissed by a prince, Little Thumbelina, the Empress of the Pagodas, as well as Beauty and the Beast. Maurice Ravel loved the world of children more than anything. In his little house, he surrounded himself with mechanical toys, dolls, and children's furniture. And of course he had a soft spot for fairy tales and children’s stories. With his cycle “Ma mère l'oye” (Mother Goose), he wanted to recall precisely this “poetry of childhood,” which he succeeded in doing in a very charming way.
