Witty, whimsical, off-beat and moving musical texts with animals
"The pet cat seems to do to the piano what the devil does to the violin", Bruno Aulich once wrote in "Moonlight sonata and cat's fugue". Elke Heidenreich knows what he is talking about: her tomcat, Nero, loves walking over the keys of her piano at night and waking everyone up with the most modern of music. And during the nights of spring, when a tomcat's fancy turns to love and defending his territory, the air is filled with the gentle sounds of caterwauling. In other words, the world of feline music is a big one.
The authors in this book have written about topics such as off-beat musical experiences, Asian music or the Donizetti cats' duet…
This is a collection of jaunty, amusing, unusual and deeply sad texts by Annette Humpe, Akif Pirinçci, Herbert Rosendorfer, Jan Weiler, Wladimir Kaminer, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Bernd Schroeder, Alex Hennig von Lange, Wolfgang Joop, Lea Singer, Keto von Waberer, Ingrid Noll, Hans Neuenfels, and many others.
