Gordon Kampe: 7 Zwerge

Gordon Kampe: 7 Zwerge

The ensemble Ascolta was looking for a children’s piece. Because the 7 musicians believe that it is important to combine music for children with a story and / or to offer educational material beyond the piece. What could be more natural for 7 musicians than to come up with »Snow White«, said the author and director Manfred Weiß and wrote a version for the 7 musicians and their instruments. And it goes like this: The »7 Dwarfs« were a famous band and even super successful with Snow White as their singer. But since she is with her prince, nothing works out anymore… Gordon Kampe congenially developed a wonderfully crazy music to this libretto, which responds to the individual characters as well as to the instruments of the ensemble Ascolta. And all the children can learn a lot before and after the experience about what it means to make music and sing together. Because: you wouldn’t believe it, but it’s true: they also sing, the 7 of them!

»Don’t be silly!« How often I have heard that! Probably we have all heard it before. And why should anyone stick to it? The dwarves, at least, don’t. They’re silly, a bit ballaballaand: they’re really, really sad because they’ve lost Snow White. Actually, I’ve been a dwarf for 45 years, probably the one who eats too much Nutella and makes noise. Never mind. Being silly and contrite at the same time is okay, the main thing is to have a few songs handy. In hardly any other genre do I feel as free andif I may say soalso as uninhibited as with children’s pieces, without which the other pieces would not be possible at all. Of course the round fits into the square, of course there are children’s songs to sing along to (please sing along all of you, really!) and of course there are noises, squeals and squeals and squeals! Sad, silly, cheerful, serious…. All at the same time, like a child’s birthday party in Wanne-Eickel. Besides, who looks in a mirror while pouting?

CLOSING
The possibilities of scenic concert formats interest the seven musicians just as much as border areas between new, old and popular music. In collaboration with artists from the fields of video, performance and multimedia, projects such as »Der absolute Film« and »Schatten« (in cooperation with ZDF/arte), Jennifer Walshe’s »meanwhile, back at the ranch«, Simon Steen-Andersen’s »Staged Night« or the music-theatrical production »Vor dem Gesetz« by Martin Smolka and Jiří Adámek were created.
