It's a fortuitous confluence of circumstances when a celebrated operatic bass like Günther Groissböck and a likewise popular tenor like Karl-Michael Ebner develop a friendship and discover their mutual love for Wienerlied, Vienna's unique musical and socio-cultural phenomenon. Even more so, if this leads to an album production like the one at hand, which additionally features spoken interludes - witty but also pointed, biting, and sarcastic Viennese poems by Trude Marzik, Josef Weinheber and H. C. Artmann, read with great charm by Christoph Wagner-Trenkwitz - as well as captivating instrumentals by the Philharmonia-Schrammeln.
