"Their extensive
knowledge of the field,
the original research
that goes into each
creative program, the
well-wrought program
notes and their smart
repartee
from behind
the keyboard all combine
to create a sense of celebratory occasion
at every concert
they give."
—Andante Magazine

 

Fugitives

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
Jokl: Abendlied
Hollander: Black Market
Eisler: Peace Song
Kalman: Duet from "Duchess of Chicago"
