An evening devoted entirely to the light music of the Weimar period.
The Burgäschi Dance Orchestra and The Harmonists Basel invite you to an upbeat concert evening with literature by the Comedian Harmonists and other hits from operetta, film and light music of the twenties and thirties. The dance orchestra music of the Weimar Republik reflects the spirit of this wild era like hardly anything else. After James Reese Europe brought ragtime and big band to Europe in 1918, the new style inspired not only composers of light music, but also the work of composers like Shostakovich, Krenek or Stravinsky.
An important testimony to the music of that period were vocal ensembles such as the American Revelers or the Comedian Harmonists in Germany. The Harmonists Basel have dedicated themselves to the music of the latter. With their fast-paced, humorous or classically profound songs, the vocal quartet will captivate any audience.
Experience The Harmonists Basel and the Burgäschi Dance Orchestra in an evening of entertainment dedicated entirely to the light music of the Weimar period under the title "Have you ever been in love with me?". If you have not, you undoubtedly will be afterwards, because being in love with this music is the most beautiful thing there is.
