“Once upon a time there was a lovely little violin who lived on the edge of a forest …”.
Goldiepegs and the Three Cellos is the second work for children and adults alike by Anne Dudley, following a text by the cellist Steven Isserlis.
Loosely based on the fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Isserlis’ story takes us on a magical and humorous journey into the world of musical fairy tales, a strict mother, and a family of cellos.
The original version is for narrator, violin, three cellos and piano. The expanded version for narrator, violin, three violoncellos and string orchestra is now receiving its first performance in Padova. Steven Isserlis leads the Orchestra de Padova e del Veneto.
