Max and Moritz: A boys‘ story in seven pranks by Wilhelm Busch
in a setting for baritone voice and saxophone quartet by Guido Rennert
Integrated into an Introduction, Overture and Epilogue, Guido Rennert has succeeded in creating a thoroughly gripping realisation of the seven pranks by Wilhelm Busch, allowing the well-known images to reappear anew in the mind‘s eye of the listener. This is an exciting, large-scale opera that thrills children and adults alike, cast in the most economical of possible performing forces - quartet and one singer - revealing true compositional mastery.
These are some of the interesting and exciting aspects -included in the booklet - that allow the adult CD-listener to re-experience anew the well-known pictures and rhymes from childhood days.
Children, unburdened by all these ideas, will also continue to enjoy the merry pranks whilst simultaneously ﬁnding access to music.
