KÁLMÁNIANA!
Orchestral music, arias, songs, and chansons by Emmerich und Charles Kálmán

Concert: celebrating 90 years since the birth of Charles Kálmán (17th November 1929 – 22nd February 2015)

The singer and host for this event is Wolfgang Dosch, who was a friend of Charles Kálmán for 25 years. This friendship is reflected in numerous compositions. including the one-man musical that was dedicated to Dosch, “Novecento – Die Legende vom Ozeanpianisten”. In conversation with Robert Jarczyk-Kálmán, Dosch gives us an insight into the life and music of Emmerich und Charles Kálmán.

The Franz Lehár Orchestra, well-known for their numerous prizewinning CD recordings, perform here under renowned conductor Reto Parolari. Charles Kálmán dedicated a number of his orchestral works to Parolari, who in turn conducted the premiere performances of numerous Kálmán pieces. We can be assured of some exciting and confident interpretations. Miriam Portmann and Alexandru Badea appear as soloists.
