Senta Berger - 'SHE and HIM' or 'Love is a force from heaven'.

The grande dame of German-language film does Kufstein the honour.

If you "only" know Senta Berger from television, you have missed something: because with her phenomenal stage presence and charisma, which you can only experience at one of her lusty live performances, she easily replaces an entire acting ensemble.

One marvels at her intense facial expressions and variable body language, at her virtuoso interplay of arms and hands, in harmony with her unmistakable voice, which has a wide range from the most delicate coo to the most violent outburst of rage.

She has thus mastered the great art of bringing the amusingly witty texts by Alfred Polgar, Viennese theatre critic and feature writer of the twenties and thirties, to the audience in the most vivid way so that everyone, young and old, can recognise themselves in the everyday scenes portrayed.

In the sense of the literary critic Reich-Ranicki, who said of Alfred Polgar: "to describe the art of Alfred Polgar, one would have to be able to write like Alfred Polgar", one could add:

To describe Senta Berger's art, one would have to be able to act like Senta Berger! The eternally young and beautiful Viennese succeeds with these cabinet pieces in translating the still topical texts into something visibly alive.

The Klenze Duo, who accompany the recitations with the appropriate coffee house music (Kreisler, Lanner, Monti, among others) ingeniously and sensitively, contribute to this atmosphere.

Recitation: Senta Berger
Lyrics: Alfred Polgar
Music: Klenze Duo (David Frühwirth, violin; Johannes Zahlten, viola)

An enchanting evening full of poetry and Viennese charm...
