Eisler: Serious Songs 5 : XX Party
From the Twenties and the Berlin of the Weimar Republic until his emigration to the United States, of his return to Vienna after the end of Nazi period up to his last days in East Berlin, Hanns Eisler’s life was a long exile in the face of artistic, technical and political upheavals of the 20th Century. Distance, irony and melancholy are the aesthetic consequences that characterize the selection of songs presented here.
