Advent Calendar 2015

December 14th - Minuet

During Advent, vocal groups give many popular concerts – today we go more than 80 years into the past.



"The Comedian Harmonists" was a German vocal group that performed concerts between 1928 and 1934. The group was highly appreciated and they traveled round Europe, playing in prestigious concert halls. There were six members: five singers and a pianist (two tenors, one tenor buffo, baritone, bass and piano). When Nazism came to power, the group got problems because three singers were Jews. At last, they fled to the United States, but they did not get the same success there as they had in Europe. One of the reasons was simply because they were Germans. "The Comedian Harmonists" was a group with great talent, quality and good mood. Here for example, we can enjoy a funny version of Boccherini’s famous Minuet from the Quintet Op. 11, No. 5.
