Sinfonietta da Camera Salzburg feat. Nina Proll

"Yes, sirs!"

Conductor: Peter Wesenauer
Voice: Nina Proll 
Admission: € 9
An evening with music from the UFA films of the 20s, 30s and 40s.
Berlin's famous Hotel Adlon joins in the dance on the volcano that begins in Berlin in the early 1920s. Modern dances such as the Charleston or the Paso Doble are danced everywhere. There are competitions at the Adlon to see who has the fastest legs. It is the great era of ballrooms, revues, jazz, nightclubs and variety theatres that outdo each other with sensations. At that time, the Jewish violinist Marek Weber, who created an unmistakable sound of light music like no other at the time, played daily with his orchestra at the Adlon. A few years earlier, in the final stages of the lost First World War, the Universum Film Aktiengesellschaft (UFA) was founded by the supreme army command in 1917 on the orders of General Ludendorff as a reaction to the perceived advantage of the enemy in the field of film propaganda and in order to make film usable for psychological warfare in their own country. After the end of the First World War, elaborate entertainment films such as Dr Mabuse, Die Nibelungen, Faust and Metropolis were made instead of propaganda films. While the first 10 years of the UFA were still films without sound, the first UFA sound film was produced in 1929 with Melodie des Herzens. Actresses and actors such as Marlene Dietrich, Hans Albers, Zarah Leander, Heinz Rühmann, Lilian Harvey, Marika Rökk and Renate Müller; composers and lyricists such as Friedrich Hollaender, Werner Richard Heymann, Bruno Balz, Theo Mackeben and Michael Jary were turned into stars by the UFA. In their new programme, Jawohl meine Herrn!, actress and singer Nina Proll and conductor Peter WesenAuer, together with the Sinfonietta da Camera Salzburg, present music from the early days of Austrian-German sound film and describe how differently the individual stars dealt with their instrumentalisation by the regime and how their lives turned out.
