Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"The title of Hanns Eisler's collection might suggest Gershwin or Cole Porter, and that is part of their bitter irony. They are settings mostly of Brecht, the voice of the disenchanted German emigres who fled Hitler for Los Angeles and found the conformist entertainment industry not much more hospitable to their talents than Nazism...So Eisler's 'Hollywood Songbook' is a kind of 'Winterreise' for Sunset Boulevard...[Goerne] sings with rare insight and fluency..." -Ashby, ARG
