In der Wolkenfabrik (In the Cloud Factory) 2014
Here it is! Toni’s new CD for children “In der Wolkenfabrik” invites us to travel high up into the skies. A red-kite is circling in a mysterious manner, the millionaire wants to finish his propeller-bicycle, the minister of weather is looking for answers and a little imp is messing up the house. Warming moments of friendship, true words from the Winter troll and a soothing version of the old German folksong “Die Koenigskinder” will lighten the mood in every child’s room.

Reise nach Irgendwo (Journey to Anywhere) 2010
On Toni’s second CD for children „Reise nach Irgendwo“ we meet a clever but careless bookworm, wind-spirits and a crazy robot . A brave dragonfly defends its rural paradise with a warm-hearted speech to the parliament and Hänsel und Berta tell the real version of the famous fairy tale which really took place in the vastness of outer space – as recently proved scientifically!
Das Spiel (The Game) 2011
The CD opens with a 12-minute composition for string orchestra in three movements: Motorus, Sehnsucht (longing) and Euphoria. Motorus being an imaginary word in the German language associating engines and perpetual motion of some sort.
After the instrumental introduction Toni presents six of his original songs and an arrangement of the old German folk song “Blaublümelein”. Three of the songs are in English that Toni wrote while travelling the English speaking world and the others are in his first language, German.
You’ll find a stop-motion shadow theatre video of “Blaublümelein” by the artist Romy Pfeiffer here.
