Into a Children’s Room

Elena Marangou and Tobias Krampen in songs by Mussorgsky, Britten, Brahms, Poulenc, Koukos, Kouroupos, and Baltas. These songs, written in five languages, at different times and places, have something in common: the stories, the dreams, the fears, and the whispers than can be heard in a children’s room. It is the kind of music that haunts the memory of adults; it is the children’s room of each one of us.
