Child goes first: happy, jumping, running forward, turning, acting like a soldier, like a fairy, like a lion tamer. You're walking with a hero, trying to understand where the energy and fantasy comes from.
Mullova plays boldly, accenting the dancing rhythm. The sound harmony between her and the orchestra is exemplary.
