Concert | Sarah Gabriel with Joanna MacGregor at Dartington Festival

Sarah will sing Berlin Cabaret songs with the celebrated and innovative pianist, Joanna MacGregor in a late-night concert in The Great Hall, Dartington on 20th August.

With clarinettist Steve Dummer, Sarah and Joanna will explore the golden age of cabaret: the songs of ebullient, febrile, decadent and subversive Berlin in the Weimar era of the 1920s and 30s, where artistes in underground nightclubs dissected the political maelstrom in the streets above.

The legacy of the endlessly inventive composers and performers lives on, sinuously transforming song across Europe and on Broadway too, although many of the composers themselves – seen as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis – did not survive the war that followed. To include songs by Kurt Weill, Mischa Spoliansky, Friedrich Hollaender (The Blue Angel), Erwin Schulhoff and Ernst Krenek (Jonny spielt auf).
