NotenTexte. "The Animals' Conference" - A musical and literary event for children


After humans are unable to make peace with each other despite countless negotiations, animals from all parts of the world meet at an international conference to fight for world peace with cunning and cohesion.

Erich Kästner wrote this turbulent political parable with colorful, humorous illustrations by Walter Trier in 1949 based on an idea by Jella Lepman, the founder of the International Youth Library. In the NotenTexte series, the still highly topical "The Animals' Conference" is presented by the actor Jakob Immervoll and a string quartet consisting of musicians from the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, who make the struggle for world peace audible in a rousing and imaginative way.
