The Little Witch – Children and Family Concert for Woodwind Quintet and Narrator
Ventus Ensemble Salzburg
After the success enjoyed by the Ventus Quintett Salzburg in 2009 with Peter Marino’s score of Puss in Boots the ensemble plans for the 2011/2012 season to perform Ottfried Preussler’s Die kleine Hexe in a version for woodwind quintet and narrator. With the support of the EvS Music Foundation Peter Marino has been issued the composition commission. Marino’s music will be centerstage here with set, dramatics and props moving into the background to enable the young listeners a focused musical experience. The children will be actively included in the performance with singing, actions and role plays. The musical version of the Little Witch is to be performed in Salzburg and at other theaters throughout country-region Austria.
