Weimar Berlin: To the Cabaret!

Philharmonia Orchestra / London / Music

Put down the knitting, the book, and the broom. This program conjures the between-the-wars sound of that bustling, subversive city, Berlin. Kurt Weill is here, of course, but also Friedrich Hollaender, who composed some of history’s greatest cabaret songs, including 1930’s “Falling in Love Again (Can’t Help It).” Screen projections of film, photographs, paintings, letters, and diaries bring a precarious era to life. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts. —L.J.
