The composition Pinocchio tells the story of the puppet that can turn into a real little boy on the condition that he can prove he is courageous and remains honest. The different characters and emotions in the story are very well described in music: from the love of Gepetto, via the mean tricks of the cat and the fox, up to the naive Pinocchio and the bloodthirsty shark. This is a real adventure for the musicians as well as for the audience.
