Notes & Reviews:

Talented and innovative conductor and pianist Richard Kapp died on June 4th, 2006 after a courageous battle with cancer. It's only fitting that this delightful and unusual recording serves as a charming memorial to him. The first work is based on the book 'Slovenly Peter' by German physician Heinrich Hoffman (1809-1894), a prolific writer of medical texts, plays, humor and children's books. This classic story, which challenged the "artificial, falsely nanve" children's tales of the time, was set to music by the French composer Noel Regney in a style that will appeal to all those who love Ibert's 'Disvertissement' or Kurka's 'Good Soldier Schweik' music. Ravel's 'Mother Goose' is more than just a musical depiction of the classic children's stories; it contains some of the most achingly beautiful melodies and harmonies. The Biber 'Sonata' makes for a fine and curious conclusion, being a collection of evocative animal impressions such as the nightingale, cuckoo, frog, hen, rooster, quail and cat. This music is for children and accessible to any adult who is in touch with their inner child.
