The present edition is based on a reprint of the first edition published in 1730 (copy housed at King's College, Cambridge), in which the sonatas are explicitly assigned to the recorder. Francesco Mancini's four sonatas were first published in a collection of twelve sonatas in 1724. The present edition is based on a reprint of the first edition published in 1730 (copy housed at King's College Cambridge) in which the sonatas are explicitly assigned to the recorder. He knew the story from his son who had been crazy about The Neverending Story along with all the kids his age. I read the book and was thrilled. A little boy who likes reading stories survives a series of exciting adventures and finally saves the gravely threatened land of Phantasien. What a lovely utterly up-to-date idea. I got in touch with the author and corresponded with him actively until his death as well as enjoying an unforgettable meeting with him. Michael Ende gave me a lot of tips and after having heard my Cornet opera was really looking forward to hearing my music. The orchestral fantasy The Land of Phantasien was written before the opera and is a purely musical encounter with the famous story. Characters and situations in The Neverending Story have provided the inspiration for individual sections of the composition which I have made into musically autonomous movements. A narrator puts the music into its context in the plot. When composing the opera on which I am currently working I shall often have recourse to the musical raw material of the orchestral fantasy. My granddaughter Elsa is now an enthusiastic reader of The Neverending Story. She loves the book has spent a lot of time drawing the characters in the story and written the closing notes of the score. This composition is dedicated to her and to all children large and small who want to save Phantasy.
