A Christmas tale
Text by Corinne Baudet, read by Marion Fontana, musical arrangements by the OSR from works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Benjamin Britten, Antonín Dvořák and Gabriel Fauré
Three musical instruments find themselves abandonned in a rubbish container the night before Christmas. How they would love to share the magic of music once more! But they are badly damaged and have no idea how to rescue themselves from the situation.
They suceed in attracting the attention of a young girl making a basic living from abandoned objects she collects and restores. She often finds treasures that people throw away without thinking.
Perhaps, just perhaps, she could give a new life to these three poor instruments?
