Recorded on 18 March 2012 at Abbey Road Studios, London.

Children’s author Michael Morpurgo narrates his book The Mozart Question, an eloquent and ultimately uplifting story charting a small boy’s discovery of his love for the violin, and of his parents’ traumatic past in a concentration camp during the Second World War. This CD weaves together the book’s narration with musical extracts to bring the story alive, featuring pieces by Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bach and Mozart performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

The musical extracts interspersed with the narration include movements from Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik, and Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Nicholas Collon conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra with violin soloist Jack Liebeck.

Michael Morpurgo is one of Britain’s best-loved children’s authors. He has written more than 100 books and has won the Smarties Prize, the Whitbread Award, and most recently the Blue Peter Book Award for Private Peaceful. He is also the author of War Horse, which has been made into a Tony Award-winning Broadway play and a Golden Globe-nominated film. Michael was Writer in Residence at The Savoy Hotel from January to March 2007, and previously he was Children’s Laureate from 2003–2005, a role that took him across Britain to inspire a love of reading in children.

Musical audiobook adaptation of the children’s book by much-loved author Michael Morpurgo.

Michael Morpurgo is also author of War Horse, which has been made into a West End and Broadway play and a Golden Globe-nominated film.

Narrated by the author, Michael Morpurgo.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra performs extracts of works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, J Strauss and Messiaen interpersed with the narration to bring the story to life.

A simple and moving story that introduces children aged 7–12 to the Holocaust in an appropriate way.

Friendship and family, truth and secrets, and the power of culture and music are all interwoven into the story, which has an ultimately uplifting message.

Conducted by rising star Nicholas Collon, founder and Principal Conductor of Aurora Orchestra.
