Renowned German chanteuse Ute Lemper joins her countrymen the Vogler Quartet and Stefan

Malzew for a collection of songs that takes the listeners on a journey through time via Europe and

Argentina.

 

Paris Days, Berlin Nights

(Steinway & Sons 30009 — March 20, 2012) will coincide

with a North American tour beginning at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC on March 19

and ending April 6 in Quebec, with stops in Akron, OH; Beaver Creek, CO; Vancouver; Los

Angeles, CA; La Jolla, CA; San Francisco, CA; Toronto; and New York City.

Bookended by post-war tales of love and despair from the French songbook by Jacques Brel and

Edith Piaf,

 

 

Paris Days, Berlin Nights

hearkens back to the years of the revolutionary and

decadent Weimar Republic, rooted in music and stories by Kurt Weill and Berthold Brecht.

Stepping into the darker world embodied in the songs of Hanns Eisler, reflections of political

revolt composed during his exile from Nazi Germany, Lemper guides us through glimpses of a

world shattered by war. Like a great love story, the listener is then led into the passionate world

of the Latin American adventurer Astor Piazzolla, the composer of decadent songs of Argentina’s

nuevo tango,

 

before venturing to Eastern Europe with repertoire of love and war in Yiddish and

in Russian, including two chansons by the Polish-born Israeli singer Chava Alberstein.
