This page is about where you can see Rainer.

Some of Rainer's performances are in comedy clubs where he will be doing a 20 minute solo set. While these are all prestigious venues and great fun they are are not always for the faint hearted. To see or hear Rainer do a more classical music-oriented performance, sometimes in the company of a full orchestra, check out the dates below which are in blue italics.

Rainer Hersch's April Fools Concert 2014

A total sell-out in 2012 and 2013, the April Fools Concert makes its terrible return - this time we have saved ourselves for Easter Monday, April 21st.

Bigger, better and funnier than ever before. Rainer hosts and conducts the line-up. This year legendary American comedian Rich Hall performs with the orchestra; Crouch End Festival Chorus sing it big; Oompah Brass do 'Bavarian Rhapsody' and much more besides. Plus songs translated, famous music messed about with and a great time had by all. Definitely 'the funiest concert you'll ever see' (Time Out).

May 2014 3rd

Oxford
Church of St John the Evangelist

Oxford May Music.

An unmissable double-header of a show, which also features the legendary pianist, Alfred Brendel. Brendel reads his extraordinary poems in the first half. In the second, Rainer conducts the Oxford May Music All-stars led by festival director Jack Liebeck. Can Rainer repeat his 2009 feat of getting Alfred to take part in the comedy? Only one way to find out...
