Ernst Busch - Lieder aus dem spanischen Bürgerkrieg - Lieder der Arbeiterklasse

Ernst Busch was called "the singing heart of the labor movement".
He was, along with Helene Weigel, one of the best-known singer/actors who popularized Brecht's political plays in the early 30s. His powerful, "metallic" voice was a perfect instrument for outdoor rallies and large performance halls in a time when amplification was generally unavailable. Busch spent the last years of the war in a Nazi prison and, following his release, resumed his singing and acting career in East Germany.

The songs on this CD are a fair representation of his repertory: Original recordings (all lyrics in German) from the early German labor movement, the failed revolution in 1919, and the Spanish Civil War. Included are two of Eisler's most striking "Kampflieder" from the final crisis years of the Weimar Republic: "Der heimliche Aufmarsch" and "Der rote Wedding" - both are agitprop choruses written to emphasized texts by the communist poet Erich Weinert.
