At the Frühling they perform out in the open, at a “normal” concert hall and (here) in an old swimming baths late at night. But it isn’t just the variety of venues that indicates the range and prodigality of the amarcord ensemble’s musical tastes. The quintet is just as mercurial in its choice of repertory, gliding with apparent nonchalance from one century and style to another. To close their three-concert stint for the Frühling, the five singers offer their Late Lounge audience a programme entitled “Strange Stories and Ballads”, a musical journey that includes such things as arrangements by the legendary Comedian Harmonists. As the amarcord singers can safely be expected to compere the proceedings with their customary wit and charm, this is a Late Night Lounge that could go on until very late indeed.
