Hi, Johannes1 Thank you for your message. Our name "Nethen" is unusual in the states, but I know that it is a village in Belgium, yes? Unfortunately, i don't know how my family immigrated to the US. My grandfather, Adolf Nethen, is as far back as I am aware - he lived and worked in Baltimore - it must have been his parents who immigrated. I am a composer and have written much music for TV shows, PBS and non-broadcast educational projects. i also teach piano lessons!
Please tell your children that I composed a song for kids on an album called "A Childhood Remembered". It's called ' Flight of the Wild Swans', inspired by the Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. I worked hard to make it sound magical and medieval - maybe your children would feel that, especially if they read the story. Thanks for posting. I wish you well. Carol
