Gisela May Singt Brecht - Eisler - Dessau - Gisela May Singt mp3 album

Album by Gisela May. Das Lied Von Der Moldau. is a cover of. Lied Von Der Moldau by Bertold Brecht and Hanns Eisler (1944).

Eterna's Brecht-Songs mit Gisela May uses poet Bertolt Brecht, rather than Weill, as its point of departure, and focuses in particular on Brecht's early texts; the dates given with the titles connote that of the composition of the poetry, not the music. Weill is heard in only two numbers, "Vom entrunkenen Mädchen" and "Zu Potsdam unter den Eichen," both from his Berliner Requiem (1927), of which the score had only lately been rediscovered when May recorded this album in 1968

Album · 1968 · 15 Songs. Das Berliner Requiem: Vom Ertrunkenen Madchen. By Weill, Eisler & Werzlau - Gisela May, Henry Krtschil, Studio Chorus & Studio Orchestra. 2. Das Lied Der Eisenbahntruppe Von Fort Donald. 3. Ballade Vom Soldaten, Op. 39. 4. Das Berliner Requiem.

Gisela May was, along with Helene Weigel and Lotte Lenya, one of the definitive postwar interpreters of the music composed for Bertolt Brecht by Kurt Weill, Hanns Eisler and Paul Dessau. The husky simplicity of her voice particularly suited Eisler-who despised sentimentality and valued clarity of expression. One cannot say if the results of the famous Brecht-Eisler collaboration are timeless, but they certainly have a long shelf life. Also noteworthy in this album are the "Song of the Moldau" and two anti-war hits-"Song of the Woman and the Soldier" and "Song of a German Mother. Note also the contrast between Eisler's lively, jazz-influenced style and Dessau's sometimes plodding treatment of songs from Brecht's later plays, which constitute the second half of the CD.

Gisela May (May, 31 1924 - December, 02 2016) was a distinguished German character actress of theatre and a singer, critically acclaimed for performing the songs written by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil. She also appeared as a film and TV actress in a number of movies between 1951 and 1991. Gisela May studied at the drama school in Leipzig. She was employed for nine years at various theatres, including the State Theatre of Schwerin and the State Theatre in Halle.
