The freedom and joy of 1930’s Germany cabaret culture was swept away by the winds of fascism and war. Travel back to this unique period in musical history with songs and instrumental works by banned and émigré composers from the time, and “For a Look or a Touch,” a moving chamber opera by contemporary American composer Jake Heggie. With “Swept Away!” CMSCVA revisits two of the more intriguing concert themes we have featured over the past two decades – revolutionary and banned music, and forbidden love.
