What Big Ears I Have

1 Comment

Dear Blog friends,
I'm glad to share with you a brief video of "What big ears I have", concert for children 0 - 2 years old with their parents.

Just few words, to share with you about my project.

I started to give these concerts in collaboration with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in 2004. Especially in the last years many Orchestras in Europa and US also offer concerts for families and very young children.

What I notice - with sorrow - is that often or, I should say, almost always, these concerts are based on entertainment and on the presence of actors, dancers, colors, story telling and often childish music.

My experience says that the children can listen to music written by well-known artists with a wonderful attention, without any need for entertaining them.
It is our way to establish a relationship that lets them listen, focused, to the music and, as I told in the previous posts, the brevity, complexity and variety of the pieces.

I hope you enjoy these young listeners as we do while we play and sing for them.
