Ute Lemper
Scottish Chamber Orchestra

Friday 15 August 2014

Lawrence Foster Conductor

Ute Lemper Vocalist

Includes music by Weill, Eisler and Stravinsky

The charismatic German chanteuse Ute Lemper, celebrated for her spellbinding performances of Kurt Weill and Marlene Dietrich, joins the Scottish Chamber Orchestra to explore the sensuous decadence and simmering passions of Weimar Republic Germany.

She sings seductive songs by Weill – including the famous Surabaya Johnny and Mack the Knife – as well as anti-Nazi numbers by Hanns Eisler and Bertolt Brecht. 50 years on from Marlene Dietrich's own appearance at the Festival, Lemper finishes with songs made famous by the German star in the 1930s.

Under Lawrence Foster, the orchestra also performs the Suite from Weill's biting Threepenny Opera, and the catchy rhythms of Stravinsky's tuneful Scènes de ballet.
