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!

Then, in 2003, they separated and both successfully went solo. And now, after 18...

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.
