Melodies for children – played from the heart with many instruments.
“The old classic children’s songs are revived by Quadro Nuevo’s charm and poetic arrangements. A beautiful contribution to the sustainability of our cultural treasures. Furthermore, we had a blast during the production time of the CD!”
– Julia Schölzel from the BR 4 Klassik-Redaktion.

“We really appreciate every time children come out to our concerts. Back when we were little kids we used to listen to children songs that were sung to us by our grandparents. Now that we are grown up we want to pass on these songs to you and our kids, so they don’t get lost. That’s why we recorded them as carefully as we could. Since we can’t sing very well, we played them with as many instrument as somehow possible. You are more than welcome to sing along!”
