With opera comique, opera buffa and operetta, musical theatre includes many different genres of comedy. Apart from the plot, however, music also has its own means of amusing. Mozart was undoubtedly a master of humour, who presented an early example of such illustrative music with humour in "Ein musikalischer Spaß". The music of the 20th century, which is often dismissed as serious and cerebral, is even richer in humour: for example in Ligeti's "Bagatelles", Satie's "Sonatine Bureaucratique" or Hindemith's "Overture to THE FLYING HOLLANDS, as played by a bad spa band at the fountain at 7 o'clock in the morning".

The selection of works and the dramaturgical conception of the Tischlereikonzerte are in the hands of the musicians of the orchestra. They are inspired by the new productions or revivals of the opera programme to create stimulating themes and unusual programmes that are unparalleled in their musical range in Berlin.
