Erich Wolfgang Korngold: Suite from Much Ado about Nothing

Kurt Weill: The Seven Deadly Sins

In a rare U.S. performance, their first ever in Texas, Germany’s famed Ensemble Modern performs the American premiere of a new arrangement of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht’s popular musical theater work, The Seven Deadly Sins, with acclaimed mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta singing the lead role of Anna. The sound world conjures up Berlin cabaret, but Seven Deadly Sins begins and ends in Louisiana, evoking the exile of its creators. Music from the theater worlds of Berlin and Vienna round out this remarkable program.

Reviews

a performance both elegant and bursting with enthusiasm and excitement. You will seldom hear it performed so well.

- Fono Forum on the ensemble’s 2019 Kurt Weill recording

Who better to realize these deceptively light-footed works, with their confident crossing of musical boundaries, than Ensemble Modern? And who has a more exact sense of this unique sound world than chansonnier-composer-conductor HK Gruber?

- Frankfurter Rundschau on the ensemble’s 2019 Kurt Weill recording
