Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Berlin, 1928: the heart of a nation racked by massive post-war inflation and unemployment. A city, notwithstanding, so vibrant with creativity that from the bohemian Friedrichsstrasse to the smart Kurfürstendamm there were two dozen concert halls and 35 theaters. Here, in the Grosses Schauspielhaus, Eric Charell's opulent revue Casanova provided the springboard to launch the Comedian Harmonists to stardom. From their very first appearance it was clear that in these five young singers and pianist made an ensemble of hitherto unimagined musical originality, precision, technical elegance, stagecraft and comic timing.
