Notes and Editorial Reviews

GERMANY

The Places
The Puppet Museum in Munich houses a remarkable display of puppets of all kinds, from string and hand puppets to the shadow puppets of China. Nuremberg, famous for its toys, has a Toy Museum, with exhibits ranging from the earliest times to the more nearly contemporary. From this collection we see a doll’s house, accurate in every detail, and some of the museum’s mechanical toys, in working order.

The Music
The tour is accompanied by a series of popular piano pieces, ranging from Mozart and Beethoven to Saint-Saëns and Debussy. Mozart’s Turkish March is followed by Beethoven’s so-called Rage over a Lost Penny. Included is a Chopin Waltz, a Mendelssohn Song Without Words and
Read more Tchaikovsky’s Chanson triste. The music ends with Liszt’s piano transcription of the Danse macabre of Saint-Saëns.
