A reading for children from the age of four with pictures and violin music- Music-loving children discovered Austria and its rich musical traditions. The program included a reading by the Austrian author Dagmar Glüxam with her children`s book “The Snail and the Violin” and a concert, coordinated with the book, by young musicians from the Moscow W.A. Mozart children music school.
A word from the author: When I first began to teach music history to the world-famous Wiener Sängerknaben, a student of fifteen years came to me in the first hour and said to me: „Professor, because of your book I started to play the violin. And I still play it today!” I was very happy about that, because that was the reason why I wrote and illustrated my children's book about the violin.
