About the Concert

"Only those who grow up and remain children are human," Erich Kästner once asserted, and he kept to it himself. His novel "Pünktchen und Anton" is about deception, responsibility and the power of unconditional friendship. And about a saving blow with a wooden club.
To turn the book into a musical story for the Kästner Year 2024, Pünktchen and Anton meet an entire symphony orchestra. The music brings the lively Berlin of the 1930s to life, as do the characters in the novel, including Pünktchen's dachshund Piefke.
