For their new production, the renowned Aurelius Sängerknaben Calw have made “Völkerverständigung” (international understanding) their mission: From Europe to Asia to Africa and America, the programme of folk songs is a true celebration. Particularly wellknown and catchy melodies were chosen. The Mannheimer Harfenquartett provides foundation and rhythmic stability, but also sets brilliant accents.
