  • It sometimes seems like it’s impossible to have Kurt Weill without Bertolt Brecht. However, the creative work of the Jewish composer who was born in Dessau, matured to become an artist in 1920s Berlin, and fled from the Nazis is much broader than The Threepenny Opera or Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny. In America, where Weill lived from 1935 until his death in 1950, he wrote musicals and celebrated successes on Broadway that were filmed in Hollywood.

    Vladimir Korneev honours Weill’s life’s work with his new programme YOUKALI – named after the play Weill wrote in exile about an utopian land in which everyone is respected, loved and allowed to feel free.  This  concert evening tells the story of Kurt Weill’s extraordinary musical journey from Berlin and Paris to New York.

    Vladimir premiered this new Weill program as the artist in residence at the the „Kurt Weill Fest“ 2020 in Dessau succeeding Ute Lemper.

    With “an unbelievably nuanced voice over several octaves” (Berliner Morgenpost), the Georgian-born singer and actor brings the universal language of Weill’s music into the here and now.  He is  accompanied by  his kindred spirit, concert pianist and arranger Liviu Petcu in this multi-language concert.

  • Georgian-born Vladimir Korneev and his parents fled Georgia for Germany when he was seven years old. Over the followings 12 years he completed his education as a pianist and his secondary education in Ausburg, before starting his acting and vocal studies at the State University of Theatre and Music in Munich.

He also won the international Andrej Popov chanson competition ’THE SINGING MASK’ in Saint-Petersburg.
