“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eyes.” The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and his friends the snake, the flower and the fox have enchanted generations of readers, young and old, and taught them one thing above all else: to recognise, love and appreciate what the world has to offer. But to do this, you have to be observant, looking and listening very carefully.
Under the direction of the Philharmoniker's violist Matthew Hunter, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker together with Berlin primary school students journey to the cosmos of the little prince. In cooperation with the grund_schule der künste of the Berlin University of the Arts, pupils of year four and five have undertaken a six-month-long, multidisciplinary exploration of the masterpiece by the French writer and keen aviator. Their results are presented in this family concert.
