17.11.2020 — VF AT HOME: Ludwig’s World …

Enter ‘Ludwig’s World’ and discover the bubbling universe of Beethoven, accompanied by Three Little Pigs to guide you on your adventure!

Ludwig’s World is part of the VF Kids Storytellers project, which invites children to awaken a curiosity for art and culture through music. Through a story set to music, kids aged 4 to 10 discover music through a story set to music in a series of creative workshops offered by the Festival’s education team, which consists of an actor, an illustrator-animator and alumni musicians of the Verbier Festival Academy.

This year, more than a thousand elementary school children in Valais, Vaud and Neuchâtel will discover the story of The Three Little Pigs set to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, in an arrangement for string quartet. The project, developed in consultation with primary school teachers, offers a full pedagogical experience, including artistic workshops in the classroom and via the Internet.

It is within this framework that we created Ludwig’s World with Storytellers collaborator and illustrator, Marc Philippin. Kids and kids at heart are invited to plunge into the world of Beethoven through this online interactive journey to discover the composer’s life, his work, and the instruments of the orchestra. This educational platform was first offered to teachers and students of schools where the Storytellers project is underway.
