Music At Oxford Presents:

Weimar Republic Centenary, From Richard Strauss to Kurt Weill

divider
Sarah Gabriel

The centenary of the Weimar Republic marks Germany's first democratic but flawed constitution, arguably one of the most liberal and progressive ever penned at the time. However, its weaknesses also aided Hitler in his rise to power in 1933…

In the Berlin of the time, artists in underground nightclubs satirised and dissected the political maelstrom in the streets above and captured the febrile human condition of the moment. Placing well-known songs and music by composers such as Weill, Hollaender and Schulhoff into context, alongside Lieder by Richard Strauss and contemporaneous readings and images, Sarah Gabriel and Iain Farrington conjure up a remarkably fertile period in German music.

"As fine an actress as she is a singer" Le Monde

"The springwater vocals of Sarah Gabriel" The Guardian
