Do you remember the song at evening and the voice that lulled you to sleep when you were little? A lullaby brings a quiet close to the day, to hours, which can be so new and exciting for a child! And if you sing a lullaby to a child yourself, it is a different, but just as emotional and intimate an experience. Both these experiences have inspired the creating of this song recital out of original instrumental works and arrangements. This programme reflects the most important human emotions. It could stand for one day in the life of a child or for the whole course of a lifetime. Music accompanies the most important moments in life. Even before birth, sounds play an important part in a baby's development. Music therapy has a particularly beneficial influence on babies who arrive early, because it's healing and calming effect has lasting consequences for the child's continuing development. The present recording has been made in close partnership with the Foundation for Neonatology in Zurich. As a child takes it's first musical impressions from voice and song, the musicians have made up a programme of songs in which their instruments sing the songs and tell the stories. The Duo Arnicans is made up of Florian Arnicans, whose roots are in Germany, and Arta Arnicane, who was born in Latvia. They found each other through music and now live together in Zurich.
