Hitler's violent suppression of what he called "degenerate music" sent many Jewish composers to concentration camps or exile in other parts of the world. This program of lieder and theater songs by composers, including Weill, Korngold, Schoenberg and Zemlinsky, tells the story of that turbulent era.
Performed by mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey, tenor Joseph Kaiser and
pianist Steven Blier.
Zemlinsky: Altdeutsches Minnelied; Meeraugen
Tucholsky: Sleepless Lady; How Can You Tell an American; Love Song; Wie lange noch?
Weill: The Lottery Agent's Tango
Eisler: Ändere die Welt, sie braucht es; Der Graben
Hollander: Black Market
Eisler: Peace Song
Kalman: Duet from "Duchess of Chicago"
