Kennedy Center Performance of The Merry Pranks of Master Til (Til Eulenspiegel)

Maestro Stephen Simon and I just listened to our Kennedy Center performance with Yadu narrating of The Merry Pranks of Master Til, our narrated story version of Richard Strauss' brilliant tone poem "Til Eulenspiegel." WOW! is all I can say.

"Til," as we call it for short here at the Maestro Classics office, is up on deck for recording with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in March and will be part of the Stories in Music series. This is rousing music that children and parents will never forget. I think that there will be room on the CD to include a performance without narration, as it was originally written, as well as the performance with narration.

I had forgotten how fabulous it is!
