Lieder and songs by composers in American exile: Kurt Weill, Benjamin Britten, E. W. Korngold and Hanns Eisler

Kurt Weill was one of the many German-speaking composers who, in the face of Nazism in Europe, found themselves starting a new life in the States. 
There, he developed a successful career as a composer for Broadway. In connection with the figure of Weill, we bring together composers who made temporary sojourns in the States, such as Benjamin Britten, or who lived out their final days in Hollywood, such as E.W. Korngold. A new crop of young singers from the International Opera Academy will sink their teeth into this irresistible mix of Lieder and American songs.
