“Classical music is happiness”. And Axel Ranisch and Devid Striesow are the bringers of happiness.


Filmmaker and author Axel Ranisch and actor Devid Striesow are classical nerds. Not to mention friends and music fans. Classical music weaves its way through their lives. They love the stories behind the works, the quirks of the composers and their eccentric adventures in historical garments. They love the power of the orchestra, the emotions, the contrasts, the delusions of grandeur, the sound palette. They find Gustav Mahler devastating, and with Bach even these two atheists from former East Germany feel a transcendental glow inside. In their Klassik drastisch! [“Drastic Classic”] program, they talk about their favorite works, taking the abstract names of the composers and fleshing them out into real-life heroes with all their rough edges. No knowledge of classical music required. We join the two hosts in Deutschlandfunk’s chamber music room to listen to music, letting ourselves be drawn into the wide world of opera.
