Chickens clucking, zebras running and kangaroos jumping around: Camille Saint-Saëns created colourful and captivating music about the animal world in his famous Carnival of the Animals. Which pachyderm has hidden himself in the double bass? And what strange creatures are jumping out of the xylophone? Actor Nina Hoss and the pianist brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen go on a voyage of discovery together with the Karajan Academy, conducted by Nodoka Okisawa. As an introduction, Maurice Ravel’s Ma Mère l’Oye (“Mother Goose”) whisks us away to the world of animals.
