Alix Dudel and Sebastian Albert: A Bertolt Brecht evening with guitar

Those who know Alix Dudel know what to expect: a great woman whose presence and charisma fascinate from the very first moment, a velvety deep timbre in her voice and a good dose of humour, which the poet Friedhelm Kändler repeatedly wrote on her body and in her lyrics.

For many years, she has been the "Grande Dame of German chanson" for connoisseurs, stylishly combining the yesteryear of the 1920s with the curiosity of Friedhelm Kändler's words. Supported by piano or orchestra, she sings, plays and talks about life, love and vices.

With Sebastian Albert, a gifted string artist, she presents a Bertolt Brecht programme. Bertolt Brecht was a genius; known for his mercilessness, his clarity, his boldness, his ambition, his choice of words, his accuracy. His "Threepenny Opera", the didactic plays, his epic theatre, his music are legendary.
What Alix Dudel and Sebastian Albert have selected and present is a homage to Bertolt Brecht and an idiosyncratic collage of the master's words and songs. You can look forward to ingenious settings by Hanns Eisler, Paul Dessau or Kurt Weill, which Sebastian Albert has arranged for the guitar, to words that make the great thinker Bertolt Brecht visible and to two artists who tell their own story with this programme.
