The Lullaby Project:

For many children lullabies are their first intense contact with music. Sung, or hummed by parents, or

sometimes played from recordings, for many children lullabies are a fixed part of the ritual of going to

bed. Singing can help babies to sleep, and singing to older children or singing together with them

conveys a feeling of well-being and security. However, often our children were not born with singing,

since many parents do not know the songs and the texts, or they do not believe they can sing them


Here the “lullaby project” began, which – initiated by the concert- and opera singer Cornelius

Hauptmann – in cooperation with SWR 2 (Southwest German Radio 2) and Carus-Verlag, under the

patronage of Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel – came into being as a charitable cause. For this project

Hauptmann was able to obtain and enthuse 52 of the best singers with German as their mother

tongue – many of them are also parents. They all have agreed, especially for this purpose and without

honorarium, to each record one lullaby. The songs will be broadcast on the radio and released on two

CDs. The present CD comprises the first part of this exclusive lullaby collection.

In keeping with the theme of the entire enterprise, namely promoting singing with children, parents

and children sing on this CD: Christoph Prégardien and Julian Prégardien, father and son, sing a

song, Jonas Kaufmann and Margarete Joswig sing together as parents, and Christian Elsner sings

with his daughter Paulina (9), accompanied by his son Leonhard (11) on the piano. And in addition to

the 13-year-old Lea Kübler, the eldest artists of the project, Kurt Moll and Peter Schreier, though

retired from active concert life, have stepped before the microphone to sing our children to sleep. The

lullaby collection will be completed by a second CD, available separately.

Artists (a small selection):

With song recitals and opera performances Jonas Kaufmann, the versatile tenor from Munich,

regularly provides for torrents of applause from the public. He is a guest at the important opera houses

of the world and, in addition to his operatic career he also pursues a career as a concert singer.

As one of the outstanding lyric tenors of today, Christoph Prégardien is highly regarded as a lieder

singer. He specializes in lieder and oratorio, and his repertoire encompasses all periods. Christoph

Prégardien and his accompanist Michael Gees received the MIDEM Classical Award 2009 for their

recording of Schubert’s “Die Schöne Müllerin.”

Mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager was born in Austria. With her warm-timbred voice, she

captivates audiences particularly with the creative power of her stage roles and the intelligence of her

lieder performances. Within a short space of time, she has become one of the most soughtafter

mezzo-sopranos in the world. She sings at all the major opera houses and also enjoys singing lieder.

“A heavenly bass voice enveloped in dark velvet which, in all its effortlessness, retains a moment of

thoughtful gravity – almost sweetness,” was the opinion of DIE WELT of the legendary opera singer

Kurt Moll. His repertoire included the great bass roles of Mozart, Wagner, and Strauss, yet his voice

remained flexible enough to also make his name as a lieder interpreter. Kurt Moll retired from the

operatic stage in 2006.

Peter Schreier has become a tenor legend in his lifetime. His hallmarks are his extensive repertoire

and a masterly self-assurance in stylistic matters. He is the recipient of numerous honors, prizes, and

awards for his achievements. He has also enjoyed an extremely successful career for over 30 years

as a much sought-after conductor. He is particularly known for his performances of Mozart’s works.
