ZKO at the Pfauen
A Tale about a King, a cat and the fiddle

©Michel Bumann

Once upon a time, there was a king who had eight fiddlers. Whenever these fiddlers played, the King invited his subjects to the palace – there they danced and sang, and everybody was happy and content. But then they ran out of money and the accountants were unable to see another way out: “Sack the fiddlers!” So it became very quiet in the kingdom – still and sad. Luckily, the cat Joachim had an excellent idea….

Daniel Hope presents this beautiful musical fairy tale; written and composed by his father Christopher Hope and the world famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin.
