This Sunday, the Danish National Museum will be the unique venue for a surprising matinee concert. The ensemble Eriko Makimura & Co. consisting of a tradtional chamber music format of piano and cello are joined by singers, actors and ballet dancers on the stage. Performing a set of compositions that are rarely played and adapted for the event, that is part of a charity concert series raising money for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
The event is named after the song by the German techno band Deutsch-Amerikanische Freundschaft, who just recently performed at DR Koncerthuset in Copenhagen.
Here is the list of works. Below you will find recordings and videos of the original and/or previously recorded versions of the music as a “warm up” service for the show.

Place: The Danish National Museum, Ny Vestergade 10 (main entrance), 1220 Copenhagen K.
