The morning we all became shepherds

You may think that it is courageous to embrace so much in a single book. It is not easy to get children interested in listening to Baroque music [...] The reason this book succeeds is because it is the best quality. Author, illustrator and orchestra are among the very best.

Gade’s masterpiece ’Elverhøj’ performed sensationally in technicolor

»To expose Gade to such a 'reinterpretation' had the result of eliminating the patinated impressions of earlier recordings and resulted in a new astonishing image of Gade's music in glorious technicolor.«
