From Home to Home
The first half of the twentieth century is a time of songs and stories on the move – jazz and classical, stage and concert hall. It is also a time of great social upheaval, provoking necessary satirical and political expression by émigré composers. This programme including music by Kurt Weill, Hanns Eisler, Trude Rittmann and Werner Richard Heymann accompanies these composers on their often involuntary journeys away from persecution into exile and, in some cases, back again. Performed by singer Karoline Gable and pianists Benjamin Cox and Katy Hamilton.
Our prices may increase as the house fills – book early for the best price!
