Kirchberg sings Tucholsky, he plays and recites him. With charming ease, he takes us into Tucholsky's view of the world, tells of his travels, his love affairs, politics and presents Tucholsky's sharp-tongued humor with songs composed by Eisler, Bienert and, above all, Kirchberg himself.
Chansons and couplets by Kurt Tucholsky
Yes, what was his name? Theobald Tiger? Ignaz Wrobel? Peter Panter? Or was it Kaspar Hauser? Tucholsky gave himself very different names for his literary works.
Famous composers such as Hanns Eisler provided the music. He became famous for his novel "Rheinsberg: a picture book for lovers" and wrote a huge number of poems and songs.
Johannes Kirchberg takes Kurt Tucholsky on a journey of discovery to the beginning of the last century. And he presents the still topical themes in the impressive chanson evening HEUTE ZWISCHEN GESTERN UND MORGEN.
