Musical Picture book with illustrations by Meriel Price now available to buy


Wer ist der Mächtigste auf Erden? is an audio picture book with music by Bohuslav Martinu played by the clair-obscur saxophone quartet, narrated by Wolfram Berger and illustrated by Meriel Price.

It is now available to buy through the Martinu Festtage here, Amazon Germany here, Amazon UK here or can be ordered directly from Meriel Price (see contact form) or the clair-obscur saxophone quartet.

This marvellous musical fairytale, originally a ballet by Bohuslav Martinu, was arranged for saxophone quartet by clair-obscur’s tenor saxophonist Christoph Enzel. All the details of the story can be heard in the music, from the chattering of tiny mice teeth to the wink of an eye. These details and the charmingly cheeky narration of Wolfram Berger, inspired the bright illustrations I created by hand.

The book was kindly supported by the Martinu Festtage and its founder Robert Kolinsky.

It is published by NordSüd and is currently available in German. More information on other versions will follow shortly.
