Dagmar Krause by Hanns Eisler

Dagmar Krause by Hanns Eisler

I'm one of those music addicts that refuses to listen to Broadway Musicals written after 1979, yet I'm a fan of Broadway 'like' composers such as David Bowie, Kate Bush, Nina Hagen, and so on. At some point the music of Weill and Brecht and Eisler was introduced to me through the iconic voice of Dagmar Krause. "Tank Battles: Songs of Hanns Eisler" contains many of Eisler's strongest works, and I'm happy for the english versions contained in TB as the lyrics play a massive role in not only the understanding of Eisler's narratives, but also as a entrance into the vocal performance which Dagmar Krause gives so richly.
