Salome Kammer, Rudi Spring

Composers Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler had great success with their songs, creating an unmistakable style that has remained unique with its mixture of popular music, supreme musical sophistication and political claims. Salome Kammer is a versatile artists and an ideal advocate of this music.

Reviews:

"There's some historical logic in yoking Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler together – both were active in Berlin from the late 1920s, until forced to leave by the Nazis, and both worked with Bertolt Brecht – but musically they were very different...Kammer is adroit at bridging both musical worlds; she's a superb singing actress, with the required range and technique." - The Guardian
