A concert with the German group FÖN from Berlin. FÖN were the writers Michael Ebmeyer, Tilman Rammstedt, and Florian Werner, as well as the songwriter Bruno Franceschini. Together, they made texts "with" music: Poetry, short prose, dialogs. Pithy and humorous. Sometimes sung, but usually spoken. The lyrics were accompanied by arrangements including pop, chanson, and jazz, and played on the piano, guitar, viola, trumpet, cobblestones, dry rolls, and the like. Starting the tour in Hungary, FÖN continued towards the Ukraine and Romania.
