Berlin jazz band to rock the city as part of Goethe-Institute’s golden jubilee celebrations in India

The Goethe-Institute/Max Mueller Bhavan has completed 50 years in India. To mark the golden jubilee celebrations, the institute will host a concert by Berlin’s Thaerichen’s Tentett at Park Hyatt on Friday.

Nicolai Thaerichen, pianist, composer and arranger, founded Thaerichen’s Tentett in 1999 with singer Michael Schiefel. The band performs Nicholai’s original compositions, mostly songs set on poems by artists like Dorothy Parker, Lord Byron, Thomas Hardy and Ronald D Laing. In the past fifteen years, the band has been lauded for delivering “the most felicitous compositions, the most polished arrangements, and the most humorous presentation of all larger German jazz groups (Sueddeutsche Zeitung).”

Speaking about vocalist Michael Schiefel, newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung quoted, "Germany has perhaps never had such a jazz singer."

Since its formation, the cream of Berlin's young Jazz scene (Berliner Tagesspiegel) around Nicolai Thaerichen has published five CDs. The music of Thaerichen’s Tentett is a declaration of love to the German language and gleeful caustic treatment of the same. The concert promises a musical gem. The programme is open to all and seating will be on a first-come-first-served basis.
