Sagenhaft!

Cover_CD_Sagenhaft.jpg

"Sagenhaft!", the title of our new CD plays on the etymology of Fabulous! and Legendary! and thus contains music about fables, legends, myths and fairy tales from all ages all around the world. They are deeply rooted in all cultures and have always inspired poets and composers. Which made us do some research and find the most haunting, mesmerising, disturbing and entertaining ones suitable for our line up with which we want to abduct you to the land of elves and kings, rascals and villains, and spectres and ghosts.
