Tailor-made concerts for young audiences

Professor Florestan and Maestro Eusebius, two old friends, share a passion for music and enjoy hunting out left-behind props and neglected belongings. With the help of the odd things they pull out of old boxes, suitcases and trunks, they tell the story of a composer’s life or unravel a musical topic.

Although born on the same day and in the same place, the two friends have very different personalities and often accompany the process of unpacking with friendly banter: Professor Florestan (who is a classically trained singer) is very lively, enthusiastic and prone to fantastic leaps of the imagination. Maestro Eusebius, a conductor, is more reasonable and level-headed and expresses his love for music in calmer words.

Inspired by the things that emerge from the suitcases and boxes and which determine the course of the concert, the orchestra, conducted by Maestro Eusebius, plays numerous musical pieces (some of them in excerpts). Professor Florestan, a musical multi-talent, often comes to his aid by playing the glockenspiel or the drum, by singing, dancing, reciting or by bringing a glass of water or a handkerchief to exhausted musicians. Sometimes, he even takes the baton, but rarely with much success…

The Maestro is an excellent pianist and will gladly take the solo part of a piano concert, play a sonata or accompany the Professor in a Lied.
The young audience members become involved in the concert and are addressed directly: they are asked to knock or beat, to move in time or to sing, f.i. Mozart’s canon “Bona Nox” or maybe a folk tune that has been integrated in the compositions.

Florestan and Eusebius have performed numerous times in Bonn, Darmstadt and Karlsruhe. In March 2009 they played with the Zürcher Kammerorchester in Zurich. They are very happy to accept new commissions, which they will customize for each performance location.
