The Jewish composer and pianist Mischa Spoliansky (1898–1985) was, alongside Friedrich Hollaender, one of the defining musical-minds in Berlin’s cabaret- and musical-scene in the 1920s. He became famous with his cabaret-revue “ Es liegt in der Luft”, in which Marlene Dietrich played a part. Spoliansky emigrated to London in 1933 and stayed there, until he returned to “his” Berlin in 1977 for a celebrated concert in the Renaissance-Theatre Berlin. The host Dr. Jürgen Schebera brings the works and the life of Spoliansky to life. Additionally, some of his most beautiful chansons and songs will be played live, alongside nearly forgotten and historical sound documentations.
With Dr. Jürgen Schebera, host, Alexandra Julius Frölich and Eva Maria Kölling (vocals), Alexander Guttmann (piano).
A production of the Jewish Culture Days Berlin in association with the Renaissance-Theater Berlin.
