The Roaring Twenties – Berlin, Paris, New York

Dec 12, 2021

The cabaret beckons as Close Encounters With Music ushers in the winter season in the Berkshires. In a performance that evokes the twenties of the last century — a time exemplified by Art Deco, Prohibition, the loosening of social restraints, Jazz, the Charleston and flappers — “Roaring Twenties” offers a panorama of composers and styles that defined and shaped the era: Samuel Barber, Kurt Weill, Alexander Zemlinsky, Hanns Eisler, Cole Porter, Poulenc, Schoenberg, and Erwin Schulhoff provide a bi-continental glimpse into a decade that still looms colorful, mythical and seductive in cultural history. Performers are Heather Johnson, mezzo-soprano; William Ferguson, tenor; Ieva Jokubaviciute and Renana Gutman, piano; and Yehuda Hanani, cello and artistic director.
