Degenerate Music: The Music of Weimar Berlin

Sun, Oct 5, 2008 at 8:30 PM

Susan Waterfall, piano & The Mendocino Music Festival Chamber Players
Erin Neff, vocalist

After World War I, Weimar Berlin was a cauldron of artistic ferment as avant-garde artists and intellectuals, most of them Jewish, struggled to create a modern German culture. Exuberant freedom and hectic experimentation masked a sense of impending doom. After 1933, Hitler denounced them all as “degenerate” and their forced exile carried Weimar modernity to the rest of the world. A re-creation of this fascinating and pivotal era with cabaret and chamber music of Kurt Weill, Arnold Schoenberg and Hans Eisler, together with photographs and film of the period.

Location: JCC East Bay, 1414 Walnut Street, Berkeley
$15 members/seniors/students, $20 general

Presented in association with The Goethe-Institut San Francisco & The Mendocino Music Festival
