Musical reading: merriment in the atmospheric surroundings of the old railway station.
Anja Rohlf, completely in white, sat on a table in front of heavily symbolic pictures which readily evoked associations familiar to everybody in the audience. She virtually blended with the pictures in view, becoming part of the work of art she created herself. She told stories, wise sayings and aphorisms in a very articulate voice.

The chosen works by Villa-Lobos, Joaquin Turina, and Paco Pena created a South American flair and so opened the way to a picturesque world of sound.
