70th anniversary of the Munich Radio Orchestra: The magic of beautiful melodies

Radio music from the 1950s

Wednesday, 6 April 2022, 7:30 pm
Munich, Prinzregententheater

With works by Ernst Fischer, Franz Grothe, Theo Mackeben, Robert Stolz and others

It was the age of the solemnly glowing vacuum-tube receiver with its mysterious green “magic eye”. One switched it on and heard music – perhaps from the newly founded Munich Radio Orchestra, which presented itself with swinging sounds in polished acoustics. They played everything people whistled in the 1950s: musicals and medleys, film scores and peppy dance tunes. Listen to the loveliest melodies of Franz Grothe, Leonard Bernstein, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Richard Rodgers – “melodies that everyone’s glad to hear”.

About the performers

Joseph R. Olefirowicz, an international specialist in light music, has become famed in the internet as the “dancing conductor” with his sprightly reading of Bernstein’s Candide. The spirit of the Fifties will be captured by Maximilian Maier, who regularly features at the Munich Radio Orchestra with his entertaining and informative moderation.
