Tales of little fairies in a sun palace, Peter and the Wolf, musical dreams, circus artists and a musical whodunnit comedy with an instrumental bank raid: this isn't the usual kids' stuff but actually it's brilliant entertainment and breathless excitement, all totally age appropriate and family friendly. Music for young audiences from age 6 doesn't always have to be sweet and sedate. It can also pack a punch and storm ahead with robust rhythms or zany harmonies and exotic melodies. The key is to keep critical young audiences on the edge of their seats. The Children's Subscription gets down to business with Ensemble Resonanz's versatile string players, with crazy freilach and their jazzy klezmer sound, with the Amazing Keystone Big Band, an 18-piece jazz formation from France who enrich Prokofiev's timeless themes with every idiom from blues to hip hop, and with the Sonus Brass Ensemble, who track down the bank gang with a whole lot of blowing. It's magic!
