In 1918, out of the ashes of World War I, Berlin emerged as a cultural and socially cosmopolitan centre in Germany’s delicate new Weimar Republic. Central to this era were the fabulous music and famous cabaret performances which sprang up in new venues and theatres all over the city; these songs took advantage of the relaxation of censorship laws in inter-war Berlin and poked satirical fun at the political, economic and societal topics of the day…from which there were many to choose! However, within a few years of Nazi accession to power in 1933, this short but glorious subculture was suppressed and its greatest exponents fled Germany. Three of those Berlin artists, Kurt Weill, Friedrich Hollaender and Marlene Dietrich, later found great success in Hollywood and on Broadway and some of their well-known music – Lili Marlene, Mack the Knife, Falling in Love Again – features in this concert.
