Berlin, your face has freckles – that’s what the great Hildegard Knef has already said. And when, if not for the summer wedding, Antje Rietz, together with her swing combo, could invite you to a cozy, musically freckled evening in the freshness of Berlin’s Schlosspark Theater. The singer with the trumpet and her three well-tempered gentlemen on piano, bass and drums play a skilful mix of elegant jazz and swing and pop songs and chansons from the past. They are not only inspired by Kurt Weill, Harry Belafonte, Louis Armstrong or Hildegard Knef.
The native Berliner Antje Rietz sings with her own profound ease and the tongue-in-cheek charm also titles like Wo meine Sonne scheint, Wenn die Sonne hinter den Dächern versinkt or Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin.
A touch of melancholy and longing, the hilarious enthusiasm of the Berlin girl for her city par excellence and the elegant jazz sound of her golden trumpet lend the right spice to this evening, which celebrates the summer beauty of the Spree metropolis. Berlin bleibt doch Berlin, da kannste nüscht dran ändern".
