Welt im Silbersaal – Weltmusik | Salon | Tanz
Even more culture on Munich’s most beautiful cabaret stage
Since the renovation of our theater and the reopening in 2014, we have Munich’s most beautiful cabaret stage next to the big house with the Silbersaal. Here, cultural diversity becomes visible. World music concerts, classical salon evenings and dance events take place as part of the Welt im Silbersaal series.
World music – sounds from the most diverse countries
We present great world music concerts. As an advisor, presenter and of course as a musician on stage we could win Mulo Francel for this, who celebrates international successes with his band Quadro Nuevo.
Salon – Musical-cultural salon evenings
We revive the salon culture of the 19th century and dedicate ourselves in a musical-artistic way to the most diverse topics, artists.
Dance – The silver hall becomes a dance hall
Dance enthusiasts will also get their money’s worth in this new series. The audience can conquer the dance floor to tango, swing and Bavarian folk dance.
BECAUSE … women are like that?
With Ulrike Hallas, Jil Clesse und Marina Komissartchik
Ulrike Hallas and Jil Clesse dedicate this concert evening with compositions by Kurt Weill to the versatility of women. What makes me a woman? Do I have to conform to guidelines because that’s how women are? But… what are they actually like? The compositions, ranging from jazz to chanson and musical to operetta, are about women beyond the norm, about crossing borders and adapting. Marina Komissartchik accompanies on the grand piano.

Lecture with Stefan Wilkening
Under the title “Mit meinen heißen Tränen” (With my hot tears), the well-known actor and speaker Stefan Wilkening approaches Franz Schubert in a literary way in the series dedicated to him. Wilkening reads from the composer’s letters and diaries as well as from accounts by contemporaries. Wilkening was an ensemble member at the Bayerisches Staatsschauspiel for eleven years. His engagements also took him to the Gärtnerplatztheater, the Salzburg Mozartwochen and regularly to the Deutsche Oper am Rhein. For more than 15 years, Stefan Wilkening has also been one of the defining voices of Bayerischer Rundfunk. Foto: Bianca Faltermeyer
INTO THE DEEP
With Martina Eisenreich (Violine), Andreas Hinterseher (Accordion) & als Guest: Wolfgang Lohmeier (internationales großes blaues Reiseschlagwerk)
Two virtuoso exceptional musicians in an intense musical encounter, as it can only arise in this duo: Goosebump-beautiful film scores and wondrous soundscapes of the composer meet fantastic travel narratives of the well-traveled accordionist of “Quadro Nuevo”. Sound artist Wolfgang Lohmeier, as guest, conjures up stage-filling sound paintings that must be seen and heard.
With Andreas Schmidt (baritone) and Maharani Chakrabarti (piano, moderation)
Kammersänger Andreas Schmidt is a distinguished interpreter of Lieder. At the Schubertiade in the Silbersaal, he will perform Franz Schubert’s Schwanengesang (Swan Song), accompanied by Maharani Chakrabarti on the piano. A collection of 14 last songs, which – unlike Die schöne Müllerin and Winterreise – were not conceived as a cycle, but were compiled posthumously by the publisher. Based on texts by Rellstab, Heine and Seidl, Schubert’s art of song is once again traversed in all directions. The evening is rounded off with Schumann songs by Rellstab and Heine.
Alexandra or the dream of flying
Scenic-musical flirt with the life of the artist ALEXANDRA
Anja Morell and Florian Appel take their audience on a journey into the dazzling and enigmatic world of the singer Alexandra, who created a lasting musical monument for herself in the mid-1960s with songs like “Mein Freund, der Baum”, “Sehnsucht” or “Zigeunerjunge”. They revisit the artist’s eventful life in scenes and their own interpretations of her world-famous songs. Idea and direction: Alexander May. Photo: Daniel Betz
Evelyn Hubers “Schimmer Trio”
With Evelyn Huber (Harp), Gustavo Strauss (Violin) & Jakob Lakner (Clarinet)
The Schimmer Trio refreshingly brings together three dynamic exceptional musicians who have made it their mission to explore the boundaries between tango, jazz and klezmer in new ways, both chamber music and improvisational.
Minimalist in groove, this trio wanders through unheard-of landscapes that may seem thoroughly familiar to listeners and at the same time, as if in flux, bring a wide variety of musical colors to shimmer and glow.
Recital with Frederic Jost
As part of “Schubert and…”, the singer Frederic Jost presents… Songs by the composer based on the poems of Johann Baptist Mayrhofer. In addition, “Four Serious Songs” by Johannes Brahms. Brahms composed the cycle for bass and piano in 1896 and dedicated it to the sculptor and painter Max Klinger. Fredric Jost was a soloist with the Tölzer Knabenchor and regularly appears on the most renowned opera stages. In addition, he has always devoted himself with great passion to lieder singing and was a guest at the Franconian Music Days in Alzenau in 2015, accompanied by Donald Sulzen, with a lieder recital.

Between Space and Time
Persian Poetry & Music from Europe
with actress Ulrike Kriener & Reza Ghotbi (santoor & speaker in Persian), Nicole Heartseeker (grand piano) and Mulo Francel (saxophone & clarinet)
The poetry of great Persian poets such as Rumi and Hafis, masterfully recited in the original by Reza Ghotbi and spoken with warm timbre in the German translation by actress Ulrike Kriener, interweaves with music to create an overall atmospheric experience.
Mulo Francel, saxophonist of the celebrated world music band Quadro Nuevo, improvises on the icons of European music: Handel, Vivaldi, Schumann, Bach. Together with the sensitive pianist Nicole Heartseeker, the melodies are atmospherically juxtaposed with Persian poetry.
This creates a sensual access to the flowery-mystical language world of Persian poetry and its powerful images.
Here, styles are mixed, millennia are transcended, cultures are united, old masters are rejuvenated and new sound images are conjured up – beyond conventional patterns and classical pigeonholing, floating in space and time.
Recital with Eric Price
The concert cycle “Schubert and…” for the year 2023 ends in December with the performance of Eric Price. The Italian-born American tenor presents selected songs by Franz Schubert as well as compositions by Ludwig van Beethoven. Price is active as a soloist at home and abroad. His broad repertoire ranges from baroque to modern in concert to opera. In demand as a concert soloist, his extensive repertoire includes the cantatas and passions of J.S. Bach, as well as J. Haydn’s Creation and F. Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang. In winter 2021 he made his debut at the Filarmonica Romana in Rome and his debut at the Innsbruck Festival of Early Music.
Paula Barembuem & Trio Infernal
The voice of the voiceless: a musical portrait of Mercedes Sosa
with Paula Barembuem (vocals), Christian Bakanic (accordion, keyboard, percussion), Christian Wendt (bass), Jörg Haberl (drums)
Christian Bakanic and his trio Infernal see themselves as ambassadors between the sound worlds of jazz, tango and modern grooves of the club scene like house and drum’n’bass. This corresponds perfectly with the self-image of Buenos Aires-born singer Paula Barembuem. Together they now realize a musical portrait of Mercedes Sosa. Her songs speak of injustice, freedom, love and hope. Thus Sosa was also called “The voice of the voiceless”.
