 On Friday November 4th Brooklyn Art Song Society will present a rare complete performance of Hanns Eislers Hollywooder Liederbuch.  Written during the composers first months in America during World War II, the Hollywood Songbook is a deeply personal mediation on loneliness, isolation, and alienation in the modern world.  This poignant work is presented by three gifted interpreters of song: soprano Kristina Bachrach (Winner, Ziering- Conlon Competition), tenor Nils Neubert, and baritone Matthew Morris.  Hanns Eisler scholar and soprano Karyn Levitt will give a free pre-concert lecture at 7PM entitled Hanns Eisler: In Dark Times.

About the Brooklyn Historical Society:
Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society is a nationally recognized urban history center dedicated to preserving and encouraging the study of Brooklyn's extraordinary 400-year history. Located in Brooklyn Heights and housed in a magnificent landmark building designed by George Post and opened in 1881, today's BHS is a cultural hub for civic dialogue, thoughtful engagement and community outreach.


About Wien:
Brooklyn Art Song Society presents five programs that capture the decadence, radicalism, and intrigue that was Vienna in the first half of the 20th-century. It was the city of Schoenberg, Mahler, Freud, Wittgenstein and countless other artists, thinkers, and rebels:  it was the City of Dreams.

About Brooklyn Art Song Society:
   The Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will enter its seventh season of first-rate music making in the Fall of 2016, having earned a reputation as one of the preeminent organizations dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music. The New York Times called BASS a company well worth watching and Voce di Meche hailed, as long as BASS is around we do not need to worry about the future of art song in the USA. Opera News writes, Brooklyn Art Song Society keeps the intimate recital alive with innovative programming.   Past highlights have included performances of the complete songs of Charles Ives and Henri Duparc, a festival of works from Franz Schuberts last year, a five-concert survey of the songs of Les Six, and the complete output of Hugo Wolf over six seasons. Committed to keeping art song relevant in our time BASS has collaborated closely with important living composers such as Tom Cipullo, Herschel Garfein, Daron Hagen, Jake Heggie, Libby Larsen, Lowell Liebermann, James Matheson, Scott Wheeler and Yehudi Wyner, and has commissioned works from up-an-coming composers Michael Djupstrom, Marie Incontrera and Andrew Staniland. In May 2015 BASS released its first album, New Voices on Roven Records, which debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard Traditional Classical charts. Highlights from this season include the five-concert series Wien, an exploration of Viennas cultural landscape from 1890-1945; BASSs debut at National Sawdust with In Context: Jake Heggie; and world premieres by Tom Cipullo and Glen Roven.  In addition to monthly concerts in Brooklyn, BASS has traveled to Philadelphia, Kansas City, Portland, ME and held residencies at University of Notre Dame and University of Chicago.   Brooklyn Art Song Society is proud to make the Brooklyn Historical Society its primary venue starting in the 2016-2017 season. BASSs artist roster features over 30 of the finest young interpreters of art song. For more information, visit www.brooklynartsongsociety.org.
