Gayle Tufts moderates an evening with talk, music and a DJ at the silent green. Classical music is a serious thing? Yes. But not only. There were and are numerous composers and performers who not only have a sense of humor in their private life, but also incorporate it into their music. In the second RundfunkchorLounge of the season, we will dedicate ourselves to the humor in music – from Haydn to today. Sometimes it’s a text that makes you laugh. Sometimes a musical twist or a bang that comes so surprisingly that you can not help but laugh. Joseph Haydn was a master of this fine humor, playing with the listeners' expectations and wittily subverting them; In the 20th century, avant-garde composers such as John Cage and Mauricio Kagel were joking with the public. Like all lounges this season, this will take place in the silent green Kulturquartier in Wedding and will be moderated by the inimitable Gayle Tufts, who is a quick-witted and classical-minded US entertainer. The invited guests will be announced shortly. Before and after the contributions as well as during the break, DJ Malfatti also musically provides for a lounge feeling.
