Een lied voor de maan

The lonely mole decides to write a song to cheer up the moon. The grasshopper rehearses with his orchestra until they have mastered the song and one night they give a beautiful concert. But why does the moon look so sad afterwards…?
Een lied voor de maan (A song for the moon) is based on Toon Tellegen's children's book of the same name. Tellegen is internationally renowned for his many short animal stories. His work is loved by young and old for its amusing, bizarre situations and philosophical depth.
For composer Mathilde Wantenaar, the story struck a chord: "The story immediately appealed to my musical imagination. Important themes are discussed, such as loneliness, identity, disappointment and friendship. It's also a piece about the power of music."
