The musical programme brings together music inspired by childhood re-experienced in various common aesthetic keys from different points of view. Beautifully recorded live during a concert, it is a deeply-felt musical homage to all the children in the world.
“One of the most attractive discs in the set… the technical demands of the music ensure that this recital was no child’s play for the performer, and the results attest once again to Levy’s highly impressive mastery.”
