It is said that Brahms wrote his famous "Lullaby" in the Baden town of Lichtental. What could be more natural than to introduce the main composer of our summer festival to children? More precisely: babies and children of pre-school age. For our young classical music listeners, the MUSA! Ensemble already organises concert formats based on the pedagogical research findings of the American E. E. Gordon. In order to do justice to each age group, the concerts are divided into crawling concerts for children from zero to two and touring concerts for children aged four and up. Both events take place outdoors, at the walking concert there is singing - on a joint walk to our great children's concert.
Artists make art. The art of Brahms, who was a great artist, was accordingly very artificial. Because one would often like to be different from what one is, the artist Brahms dreamed of the simple folk song. It must have cost the composer insane restraint to invent such an unaffected melody as the "Lullaby". The art is still there, it "slipped" into the piano accompaniment. The melody, however, has become common property. Many a composer would give away entire symphonies for it.
