6th February: Open Meeting Deutsch Britische Gesellschaft “Tom Lehrer & Georg Kreisler”

Dear Deutsch Britische Gesellschaft Dresden Members & Friends,

For our February Open Meeting we invite you to join us for a special live music evening!

Here is what the press had to say about one of the gentlemen we will introduce you to:
“Brilliant parodies” – “remarkably unsophisticated” – “solid satanic amusement” – “a wandering minstrel with no place to wander”.

Ok, who is that? Georg Kreisler? Well, he’d certainly fit the bill, but it’s: Tom Lehrer!
In the Anglo world, Lehrer is a well known writer of satirical songs in a style Germans will readily associate with Georg Kreisler.

In an evening of unrestrained fun and satire we will hear and listen to songs by both Lehrer and Kreisler being performed by Rainer Barczaitis (vocals) and Markus Teichler (piano).

One of Lehrer’s programmes was called “An evening wasted with Tom Lehrer” – we will go one better and waste your time with Lehrer and Kreisler!

For a first impression of how the two compare, go to:

So come along, bring your friends, enjoy the music – and never mind the texts.

Entry is free, but contributions to meet our costs for the evening will be much appreciated :-)
