Sounding Jerusalem has been given a signature tune. A jingle that was already executed at the opening concert and that has been presented in the most diverse arrangements since then. A theme representing an allegory of the different faces we all have. Carnival of animals – a melody that has fascinated young and old all along, marks the glorious end of our festival.
