Uwe Kraus reads two stories by English master narrator Julian Barnes. In the first text, "Wachdienst" (original: "Vigilance"), an aficionado of classical music complains about the increasing misbehaviour amongst his fellow concert-goers and of the increasingly dramatic steps his vigilance requires as he seeks to reduce the level of noise in the audience around him. In the second narrative, "Stille" (original: "The Silence"), we hear the musings of an elderly Sibelius as he struggles to complete his Eighth Symphony. Pianist Tim Hakwen provides the musical backdrop to the reading.
