Catalog: GEN 21758
Format: COMPACT DISC
Lackner, Alice; Lichtwark, Imke; Daigger, Sven
Frivolous young ladies, sisters with suicidal desires, crows, a depressed wanderer, and many other strange characters meet in colorful musical garb on the GENUIN debut album of the lied duo Alice Lackner and Imke Lichtwark . Music by Schönberg and Zemlinsky, written for the legendary Überbrettl cabaret in Berlin, is combined with contemporary music by Sven Daigger, two of which were written specifically for this release. Lackner and Lichtwark approach the art songs straddling all genres with seriousness and extraordinary lightness. Listeners can expect sharp character sketches ranging from passionate love to honky-tonk and the dark abysses of the soul.
