Wunderkind Little Amadeus

The Bear Is Loose

Season 1, Episode 14 of 26

Amadeus and his dog, Pumperl, fetch some medicine for Amadeus' sister Nannerl. On the way, Pumperl follows another dog and disappears. While Amadeus searches for Pumperl, he stumbles on a performing bear at the marketplace. He receives gold coins (ducats) from the crowd for his violin playing. Devillius, green with envy, devises a plan to catapult his nephew Mario into Amadeus' place. But Mario's fiddling instead causes the bear to flee through the alleys of Vienna. Eventually, Amadeus' violin playing prevents even worse mishaps. The Music: "Bassoon Concerto in B Major" K. 191; "Violin Concerto in A Major" K. 219; et al. Additional Content: Monti shows examples of different styles of music, also available on the Web site.
