“The Golden Twenties”: Marie Jacquot conducts the Karajan Academy

A film that was intended to shock and shake up its viewers: Kuhle Wampe (Empty Stomach) from 1932 depicts the bitter fate of a working-class family during the Great Depression. The music is by Hanns Eisler, who compiled a concert suite with a “best of” selection from the film. Music that was in step with the times: kinetic, exciting, stirring. Kurt Weill’s name is associated first and foremost with the Threepenny Opera. He worked in many different genres, however, as his Violin Concerto and Second Symphony demonstrate.
