Popular with the younger listeners: the Symphoniker Hamburg’s floor-cushion concerts with Hasi and his best friend Juri Tetzlaff, featuring exciting stories and music. The coronavirus crisis means that Hasi and Juri can’t receive any visitors at the Laeiszhalle, so they are going to visit all the children at home instead – with new episodes via video.
Episode 2: Hasi Takes Off on a Pirate Adventure
This time the two companions have dressed up as pirates, and set sail for a wild adventure at sea. They’ve got two wondrous wind instruments on board with them: the clarinet and the bassoon. What are they going to use them for? And then a message in a bottle appears on the waves…
»The children have grown very fond of Hasi and haven’t forgotten him in the last few months – that much is evident from all the letters and pictures they send him. Of course we’re looking forward to live Hasi concerts again as soon as possible. But in the meantime, the video medium offers new insights: the children can look at the instruments in detail, and get a chance to view the Laeiszhalle’s backstage areas, the Brahms Foyer and the music archive.«
