Love, loss and exile

4. 10. 2012,  20:00 Uhr

Globe Café, Pštrossova 6, Praha 1

Folk and World Music enthusiasts in Prague might know George
Pacurar as a performer of traditional Romanian and Jewish music.
Tonights concert at the Globe, however, will be quite different.
"Love, loss and exile" is a program of poetry set to music with a
special focus on works by Bertolt Brecht, Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler,
German songs from the prewar-period and the anti-fascist exile.
Although this repertoir is typically performed by female voices and
piano, he will accompany himself on a Spanish guitar, giving it a less
theatrical mode.

Other songs are based on poems by Frank Wedekind, Federico García
Lorca, Gabriela Mistral, Christina Rossetti, Francois Villon, Heinrich
Heine and Patrick Kavanagh, set to music by Fabrizio De André, Paco
Ibáňez, Wolf Biermann, Georges Brassens and the performer himself.
Although the biggest part of the program is in German, you will hear
Spanish, English and other languages, too.
