August Zirner

Music was my first love

August Zirner is one of Germany's busiest actors, known among other things for the foreign Oscar-winning film "Die Fälscher," Schlöndorff's "Homo Faber" and the social drama "Wut. In addition, the Grimme Award winner is a much-booked jazz flutist. His father, Ludwig Zirner, scion of the Jewish Viennese department store dynasty Zwieback, was an opera director and taught at Stanford. His father, Franz Schmidt, in turn, was a composer and, with lyricist Oskar Dietrich ("We want to see our Führer"), wrote the cantata "German Resurrection" shortly after the Anschluss of Austria, which ended up in the poison cabinet of history. So Zirner, who recently delved into his own family history with his daughter very successfully as an author, has a lot to tell.

Of course, he will also talk about his childhood in the USA and his turn to jazz. It goes without saying that he will once again prove to be as clever as he is a master storyteller.
