Here are 24 songs by Bertolt Brecht with music by Hanns Eisler, Paul Dessau and Kurt Schwaen. The Swedish translation of 18 of these songs has been done by Jan Hammarlund himself. Unlike many Brecht collections, this CD features many hard-to-find Brecht tunes that were not written for his plays. These intimate poems give a view into Brecht's interior life, and his struggles as a refugee in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and finally the United States. Hammarlund's deeply personal vocals add authenticity to these songs, beautifully rendered by Richard Pilat on piano and Ola Sundström on guitar.
