Vladimir Korneev & Band
YOUKALI – Vladimir Korneev sings Kurt Weill

It sometimes seems like it’s impossible to have Kurt Weill without Bertolt Brecht. However, the creative work of the Jewish composer who was born in Dessau, matured to become an artist in 1920s Berlin, and fled from the Nazis is much broader than The Threepenny Opera or Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny. In America, where Weill lived from 1935 until his death in 1950, he wrote musicals and...

Katharine Mehrling lives music. With a great hunger for life and a longing for her audience, the thoroughbred artist with the French touch takes the audience into her musical world.

Katharine Mehrling is one of the most...

Florian Wagner
Funk You

His virtuoso piano playing is a reminiscent of a “mixture of Billy Joel and Keith Jarrett“ (Münchner Merkur), his lyrics cause “immediate fits of laughter in the audience“ (Sächsische Zeitung) and “he sings as beautifully as Michael Bublé“ (His Mom). In “Funk You“ the pianist and singer explains how Mozart would have written "Atemlos" and whether Beethoven was really deaf.

Das Geld liegt auf der Fensterbank, Marie
Gleich knallt’s

When the real-life fictional couple are not having a highly entertaining conversation, they sing and dance self-composed songs, play on the light organ and perform a smartphone show. A unique form of cabaret.

Georgette Dee
All of me – Lebenslieder

On the piano: Terry Truck

30 years ...! What a long time for people (many trees are still children after time ...) 30 years in the Spiegelzelt ... with triumphs and misfires, intoxication and hangovers, peaks of love and valleys of despair, creative highs and artistic ebbs. But then melodies, songs that feel like elixirs of life, flowing through time and space regardless of what is at the moment, enveloping being and not...

Jack Woodhead & Band
Reflections

“I rather like to be slugged, to walk away from the poem with old wounds reopened… let the poem bruise me.” Anne Sexton Jack Woodhead’s new show “Reflections” is bruising, wounding cabaret in all its rabid, raucous, ribald splendor.  Did Jack murder his mother? Perhaps he’s just a little drunk, just a little lonely, sipping a tipple while sitting in a moth-eaten armchair in a cold flat in a...

Sven Ratzke
„Where Are We Now“

The press and the public are of one mind: hardly any other artist comes as close to David Bowie as Sven Ratzke. Bowie personally gave Ratzke his permission to avail of his entire works. The resulting STARMAN tour was a great success.  Ratzke is now venturing once again into the universe of this musical legend – different, intimate, with only Ratzke’s voice and a virtuoso on the piano (Jetse...

Sebastian Krämer
„Im Glanz der Vergeblichkeit“

Ingenious and radical - his critics put him in the same league as Morgenstern, Ringelnatz and Kreisler. In his commentaries, Krämer is capricious, in his songs sweet to coarse. His musical vocabulary ranges from swing to Viennese school.  This show is not suitable for non-German speaking visitors as German language knowledge is required.

Atrin Madani singt von Liebe

On the piano: Paul Hankinson

Atrin Madani and Paul Hankinson, two world travelers in music: one a young jazz singer from Schöneberg with Persian roots and a dreamlike voice, the other, delightfully remembered by insiders as Montmorensy, a musical genius on the piano from Australia. Both are driven by a great love of love songs.   Songs by Schubert, chansons by Aznavour, songs by Burt Bacharach - they present the last...

On the 100th birthday of Georg Kreisler | Musical direction: Oliver Potratz

For the 100th birthday of the king of black humour, Tim Fischer finally lets Georg Kreisler's cats of prey out of the bag again! Under the musical direction of bassist Oliver Potratz, with Sebastian Weiß on piano and Hauke Renken on vibraphone, Tim Fischer brings Kreisler's figures to life in his musical homage and, as a kind of medium, tickles the absurd comedy out of the songs with their...

Anna Mateur & The Beuys
Kaoshüter

She is groove and jazz and blues, she is humour and cabaret and comedy. She has been called a miracle voice or exceptional vocals, vocal acrobat or outstanding singer, her voice has been compared to Nina Hagen, Janis Joplin or Zarah Leander – all of this is true and still it is not enough to describe this wonder of nature. She dances, sings, screams and groans, she grunts, stomps and...

Klaus Hoffmann
Septemberherz

On piano: Hawo Bleich

Gentle guitar sounds, accompanied by Klaus Hoffmann's voice, expressive and enchanting; catchy melodies in radiant acoustic arrangements between chanson, jazz, latin and pop, interwoven with his poetic language. The fifteen new songs on the album tell their stories in the so typical Hoffmann way in wildly romantic images.
