The Concert Programme

In the course of the 2017/18 season the “Jazz & Lyrics” series of performances will be tackling a cross-section of works spanning the history of jazz. Now in its third year, the series begins on 19th November in the Tischlerei with a programme of pieces titled “A Message from Yesterday”. Actress Imogen Kogge reads excerpts from important, touching letters – an almost forgotten art form in an age of emails, texts, 140-character tweets and WhatsApp messages. They include missives written by Louis Armstrong and Charles Bukowski. The background music was composed by Simon Harrer, trombonist with the BigBand of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and his Bookmark Ensemble. As always, after the concert the audience is invited to mingle with the artists in the “Artists’ Lounge”. With Imogen Kogge, Simon Harrer and his Bookmark-Ensemble

For the third year in succession members of the Big Band of the Deutsche Oper Berlin present five themed concerts blending jazz with lyrics in a programme put together by Rüdiger Ruppert and Sebastian Krol.
