He settled in the USA, where for over a decade he figured as one of the most distinctive voices in the American popular style. A life with Lotte Lenya in letters, songs and biography. With singers Devony Smith, Suzanne DuPlantis, Richard Troxell, Brian Major, all with Laura Ward, piano and Jim Bergwall reading letters.
 

What audiences are saying about Lyric Fest

“It's much more than just a concert. It's the feeling of being alive.”

“You are at the center of the world where music, poetry, and thought come together. You are inches away from the art, and there's no other group that is giving you that kind of emotional immediacy.”

Lyric Fest is a place to experience the unique power of the human voice in song. We bring together great singers, composers, history, biography, and humor. Here we tell our stories in song.
