Notes & Reviews:

Rediscovered in an attic: "Peterchens Mondfahrt", one of the most popular children's books and musical fairytales for many generations, premiered in the Advent season of 1912. A hundred years later, a stack of handwritten and barely legible sheets with pieces of the original music was found in a Berlin attic. In many hours of detailed legwork the two-hour stage play was reconstructed into a 70-minutes concert version. MDR Klassik presents the first recording of this version with the MDR Children's Choir and MDR Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Ulrich Kaiser, recorded in October 2013.
