Askin: WP of Peterchens Mondfahrt
The premiere of Ali Askin’s children’s concert Peterchens Mondfahrt
(Peter’s Journey to the Moon
) took place on 18 March, 2018 at Munich’s Prinzregententheater. The elaborate concert with narration
of Gerdt von Bassewitz’s classic children’s book delighted both young and old – narrated by Tatort star (Chief Inspector) Udo Wachtveitl. In co-operation with the Museum Villa Stuck, children of the Munich Weilerschule illustrated the beautiful story of Peter’s Journey to the Moon
. Cartoonist Barbara Yelin turned the colorful images into a vivid visualization. Askin’s setting of the fanciful fairy-tale was performed by the Munich Chamber Orchestra under its principal conductor Clemens Schuldt.
Four-year-old Alma was there in Munich, and she gives us a first-hand description of the successful premiere.
