He's narrating the family concert based on a new CD storybook. It's about a girl whose heart is broken then healed on a journey with some fantastical creatures. The story by best-selling children's writer Cornelia Funke comes with songs created for voices, cellos and mandolins by Luna Pearl Woolf.

"Things are spinning so fast these days, how do we slow it down, how do we get back to words and sounds?" Noth wondered during rehearsals.

He says children like his 5-year-old son should slow down and awaken their imaginations with just words and sounds.

The CD package, which was released last month, is narrated by actor Jeremy Irons.

The idea for "Angel Heart" was born several years ago when Woolf, the Montreal-based mother of two young daughters, wanted to tell a story using just music. She teamed with cellist Matt Haimovitz, her husband, who brought in his all-cello ensemble -- Uccello.

The CD cast includes other leading musicians: soprano Lisa Delan, mezzo-sopranos Frederica von Stade and Zheng Cao (who died in February); the countertenor Daniel Taylor; and the baritone Sanford Sylvan.

The Brooklyn Youth Chorus joins Monday's performance at Carnegie's Zankel Hall.

A sort of bedtime story for the digital age, "Angel Heart" comes with an iPad app.
