The two Hungarians not only played music, they were themselves the music – in every nerve – down to their fingertips.

Izabella Simon’s programme for For 6-11-year-olds

Editor–host: Izabella Simon
Featuring: artists of and Csilla Kőszeghy illustrator

In the wake of Babar, the Little Elephant, and three entrancing tales by cellist Steven Isserlis, this year Izabella Simon, editor-programme director of the popular children’s programme of, has herself come up with an exciting story for the Saturday matinée. Exceptional clarinettist Ib Hausmann is on hand to help in the storytelling, more precisely the music-making, and then again maybe it’s the music-making story-telling. In 2015, he amazed his young audience with a snake charmer show. At the centre of the matinée stands one of the problems of Journey by Moonlight, which is set abroad: communication difficulties posed by foreign languages. The characters in the tale don’t understand each other, they cannot speak each other’s language, which is how the programme’s subtitle comes about: unknown lands and peoples. But what exactly is the ‘Magic Sound’ in the title that brings these people together – the language common to all? What else but music, which has so much to tell us.
