On a musical journey of discovery you will encounter many famous compositions, from "Eine kleine Nachtmusik" and Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" to the Birdcatcher's song from the "Magic Flute" and "La donna è mobile" from Verdi's "Rigoletto". So that you can really enjoy making music the arrangements have been recorded in two versions on the CD: with and without recorders.
