Kurt Tucholsky - Gruss nach vorn! (Wolfgang Reichmann)

Wolfgang Reichmann (7 January 1932 – 7 May 1991) was a German actor. He appeared in 69 films and television shows between 1954 and 1991. He starred in the film "The Fair", which was entered into the 10th Berlin International Film Festival.

He was born just three years before Kurt Tucholsky´s death. Tucholsky was one of the most significant journalists of his time: a satirist, a cabaret writer, a socialist and pacifist. And because he wrote so much, he used a host of pseudonyms. Kurt Tucholsky was a truly enigmatic figure.
He was restless and broken, a master of self-dramatization, elegant, spirited, charming, a partygoer and a heartbreaker. But above all, he was an author and critic of his time. Kurt Tucholsky, who lived from 1890 to 1935, studied law before completely dedicating himself to writing. He saw himself as a left-wing democrat and pacifist and warned against anti-democratic tendencies – above all in politics, the military and justice – and the threat of National Socialism. His fears were confirmed when the Nazis came to power in 1933: his books were listed on the Nazi's censorship as "Entartete Kunst" ("Degenerate Art") and burned, and he lost his German citizenship.

On this album are featured Wolfgang Reichmann´s interpretations of Kurt Tuchosky´s lyrics. Besides two spoken passages there are songs with music composed by Hanns Eisler, Olaf Bienert, Henry Krtschil and others.
