Hollywood Songbook

14 October 2024, 1:00pm - 2:00pm

This is a rare opportunity to hear Hanns Eisler’s astonishing Hollywood Songbook, performed by the ‘irresistible’ (The Arts Desk) Holger Falk, and Festival favourite Julius Drake. This epic song cycle was started in a Hollywood hotel in 1942 and saw the composer collaborate closely with fellow émigré Bertolt Brecht. The result is a searing and still relevant commentary on inequality, war and enforced immigration, set against the seemingly beautiful backdrop of Los Angeles. Not to be missed.
