»Journey to a New World«

What do foreign parts sound like? A staged childrens' concert with Dvořák's American String Quartet. For children aged 8 and over.

When war breaks out in Antonia's country, she has to say goodbye to her friend the goose and emigrate. A journey into the unknown begins, taking her via Hamburg Central Station and wild blue Atlantic storms to the land of grooves and freedom. Luckily for her, someone helps her find her way through the foreign jungle.

The tale of Antonia's journey is told without words by the music itself: with the sounds of moo cans, chickens, ship's horns, Vivaldi and Dvořák's »American String Quartet«. The sounds and compositions, specially created for this concert, produce a musical journey for children aged eight and upwards, and their families.
