Born in Vienna in 1922 but driven out by the access to power of the Nazis in 1938 because of his Jewish religion, Georg Kreisler is a contradictory figure. With songs such as “Tauben vergiften im Park” [Poisoning Pigeons in the Park], this American citizen with a caustic sense of humour, who defined himself as an anarchist, became one of the leading figures of German-speaking cabaret as early as the 1950s, without ever agreeing to return to the land of his ancestors. Viennese pianist, singer and composer of Hungarian origin, Bela Koreny revisits, at the request of clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer, the legacy of this extraordinary composer whom he personally knew, having him cohabitate with the three precursors of the Second Viennese School.
