A concert for children and youth, with both a new arrangement from the composer for a well-known classical piece made for youth as well as a work created especially for this series.
Suddenly he noticed: an old and worn boot lay on the ground. Jaan’s own footwear were none too good themselves, but this boot was worse still. And besides – a single boot, what are you going to do with it? A man has two legs after all. Jaan wanted to keep on walking, but at the last moment he felt pity. Thought: I am alone and this boot is alone, how can I just leave it here lying on the ground? And he picked the boot up. It might even have squeaked a little in gratitude, but perhaps this was only the wintery wind in the pine trees.
