Eisler & Weill – Leben in Exile
An evening of song about success, exile and a new, foreign homeland

Vocals: Anna von Schrottenberg
Piano:
Matt Rubenstein




This programme takes as its starting point the politically strife-ridden Berlin of the 1920s. Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler are sensitive to the pulse of their time, creating musical responses to the problems of the Weimar Republic. These responses are quickly stigmatised as "degenerate" by the conservative political forces. Anna von Schrottenberg tells of the fate of both artists, and their path into exile. Both Weill and Eisler found it a challenge to settle in the USA, their new homeland, which they viewed with some ambivalence.
