From Berlin to New York City
Direct from a hugely successful European premiere in Berlin at Literaturforum im Brecht-Haus, the celebrated duo of soprano Karyn Levitt and pianist Eric Ostling returns to New York’s legendary Metropolitan Room to explore and discover the treasures of Austro-German composer Hanns Eisler — Brecht’s favorite collaborator, Schoenberg’s best student, and Kurt Weill’s contemporary.
This program had its world premiere in 2016 at Café Sabarsky (in Neue Galerie) and received amazing reviews for performances at Metropolitan Room.
Noted by London Times critic Irving Wardle for allowing Eisler’s songs “to bloom and be beautiful in a way which is undoubtedly musically expressive," celebrated soprano Karyn Levitt has appeared at Café Sabarsky in The Neue Galerie, The Town Hall-NYC, Carnegie Hall (Weill), and other distinguished venues. Café Sabarsky hosted the world premiere of her new cabaret show, Will There Still Be Singing? A Hanns Eisler Cabaret.
