Music and Discussion
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)

Producer: ( Center for Jewish History & Leo Baeck Institute)
Center for Jewish History & Leo Baeck Institute
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Join us for an evening exploring the history of Jewish Austrian émigrés who transplanted the music of Viennese cafes to New York City. Esther Wratschko (Prins Foundation Fellow at the Center for Jewish History) will share her discoveries in the archives.

This presentation, including musical performance and historical background, will introduce you to the Viennese cabaret performers and musicians who fled the terrors of the Nazi regime to make a living in New York by opening cafés serving lavish pastry and Viennese melange (coffee). The cafés served as both a social platform for German-speaking immigrants and a stage for the former stars of the Viennese musical cabaret. Well-known performers like Hermann Leopoldi and Fritz Spielmann performed their typical Wienerlied there, charming the hearts of the nostalgic émigrés and Americans alike. If you´re wondering what a Viennese melange is made of and what a Wienerlied sounds like, you will learn it all during this entertaining evening, cream-filled and with a sour cherry on top!
