After more than twenty years living internationally-sixteen addresses, eight countries and five different languages - writer Melissa Bradford shares a fantastic journey of motherhood that will inspire any family. Follow this family of six on their passage-extraordinary, hilarious and heartbreakingly poignant-from Bright Lights (of New York City) to the Northern Lights (of Norway) to the City of Light (Paris) to the speed-of-light of the Autobahn (in Munich). Continue deep into the tropics of Southeast Asia (Singapore) and end your voyage in the heights of the Swiss Alps (Geneva). As varied as the topography - the craggy fjords, the meandering Seine, the black forests, the muggy tropics, the soaring Alps - this multicultural tale traverses everything from giving birth in a chateau in Versailles to living on an island in a fjord. From singing jazz on national Norwegian T.V. to judging an Indonesian beauty contest. From navigating the labyrinth of French bureaucracy and the traffic patterns of Singapore to sitting around a big pine table where the whole family learns languages, cultures, cuisines-where they, in short, learn to love this complex and diverse world and, most importantly, each other. 1.

These two virtuoso keyboard musicians met for the first time at the Munich Klaviersommer 1982 and gave a concert in the Congress Hall of the German Museum. Alongside various improvisations they perform jazz standardsand end with a lyrically rendered paraphrase of Brahms‘s “Wiegenlied”.
“They want to have fun from dusk till dawn. In this, Mr Mozart and the ravers are quite alike.” If you want to get to the bottom of this statement by Friedrich Gulda, the concert “A night with Friedrich Gulda” of the Munich Klaviersommer 1995 provides the perfect opportunity. Gulda, the ingenious piano virtuoso, performs classic Mozart sonatas, just to have a party thereafter with the Paradise Trio, the Paradise Girls and DJ Vertigo. The programme includes compositions with and by Barbara Dennerlein as well as Techno Music.Gulda, born 1930 in Vienna, is regarded as one of the cross-over pioneers of his time – after a breathtaking classical career he turned towards Jazz, and later even to electronic music. His compositions as well as his live performances are legendary – they are the refreshing credentials of an unconventional genius.

As the son of jazz musician Don Menza (who is famous for playing the saxophone in "The Pink Panther Theme"), Nick began playing drums at the age of two, at which age he performed at his first public concert when during the intermission someone sat him down on Jack DeJohnette's drums and he proceeded to play. His influences stem from being nurtured around the tutelage of such notables as Buddy Rich, Steve Gadd, Nick Ceroli, Jeff Porcaro and Louie Bellson.
