"I kiss your hand, Madame": At the end of the 1920s, the talkies replaced the silent film. Entertainment masters such as Werner Richard Heymann, Theo Mackeben and Franz Grothe made effective use of the new platform for pop songs and specially composed film music. Hits like "Ich küsse Ihre Hand, Madame" are still known today. Together with soprano Natalie Karl and tenor Michael Pflumm, the Basel Symphony Orchestra brings the pearls of the sound film hit back to life.
