Bryan Ferry beim Wien-Konzert: Zwischen Lust und Romantik

Was beide Karrieren gemeinsam haben, ist der Sinn für Stil und Ästhetik.

Anno 2019 schien der Brite munterer als vor zwei Jahren in der selben Halle. Ferry bewegte sich viel, wenn er nicht am Keyboard saß, strahlte, wenn der Applaus aufwallte, sagte aber außer „Dankeschön“ (ja, auf Deutsch) nur, dass er froh sei, wieder zurück in Wien zu sein. Ansonsten ließ er die Musik und die raffinierten Arrangements sprechen, die von der großartigen Band souverän umgesetzt wurden und in glasklarem Sound im Publikum ankamen.

Ein schöner Abend, der aber nicht ewig im Gedächtnis bleiben wird.

-Hmm:

That Bryan Ferry once shone so well with his band Roxy Music was not least due to his environment, which had given up the classic bourgeois in favor of a hippie Americanism: the British pop music was in the early seventies firmly in the hands of long-haired in jeans and Schnürlsamt. Of that, Ferry stood out with his dinner jackets.

That's changed: Bryan Ferry's current suits look like better bookkeeper uniforms. The glamor is gone, at least textile. His charisma has remained, nourished by his still wonderfully fragile intonation and a body language that sometimes seems grotesque. With unshakable courage to the eccentric, he threw up in the Wiener Stadthalle, stayed briefly in rehearsed poses or danced awkwardly like his future ex-Prime Minister Theresa May.

Nevertheless, some songs developed a Funkyness, which is rare in British pop. For example, the late Roxy Music song "The Space Between" or the softly chanted "Can not Let Go", driven by sensually sparkling bass lines. Ferry was always a clever copywriter who knew where to break off a narrative to stimulate the listener's imagination. In this sense, his dramatically sophisticated programs are interesting. Why does he skip his swarming "Song For Europe" in Brexit times? Passion still lures in the shadow of Notre-Dame? Tories voter Ferry preferred tonight to keep silent about the charm of old Europe. Instead, he distracted, sang euphorically of "Tokyo Joe" in the "Danger Zone": neon-cool in Japanese. Or performed in "The 39 Steps" a tired erotomaniac: "I'm tired of wanting some other spring time," it said in righteous desperation, violin and keyboards commented maliciously like greek goddesses of revenge. Only the sultry saxophone winds that blew the dark beauty of Jorja Chalmer in the direction of Ferry seemed to aid him.

Too much kitsch? At Ferry, it can never be enough kitsch. But he can do it differently. In the tenderly sung "Every Dream Home a Heartache", the drums that started the break crashed refreshingly dry. Highlight of the evening was the impressionistic reading of "Boys and Girls". For her, Ferry sat down at the electric piano, gibbering awkwardly at the keys. The classic-romantic scenario: A stranger in the city, a mournful saxophone, tears fall into the dust of the street, at the end of which death awaits. An ideal subject, once again to circle around itself and to summon the pure present. The minimal guitar licks of the plump Chris Spedding. The veteran backing vocalist Fonzi Thornton capitulated to extra-lute sounds. And Ferry celebrated as stoically as tenderly the threatening end of life.
