There’s a lot of excitement in the castle of Princess Fasola and her cat Tido: Prince Doremi is having all the birds in his kingdom captured! Will the princess and her friends succeed in outwitting the prince’s “Muskeltiere” to free the birds? The clever quail has a brilliant plan …

NeoBarock has already delighted audiences young and old with its musical adventure about Princess Fasola in numerous children’s concerts. Now the ensemble, under the artistic direction of violinist Maren Ries, has recorded this captivating parable about the value of freedom and the unifying power of music together with author Jolanda Steiner as narrator. The well-known Cologne illustrator Heribert Schulmeyer has provided the artwork for the accompanying picture book. The music includes Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber’s famous Sonata violino solo representativa.

Three quarters of an hour of listening fun for the whole family, a beautifully illustrated book to read aloud or read along with, and a child-friendly introductory text about Baroque music and its features.
