Win CD of modern cabaret music

A new record label will give away to readers of The Japan Times three copies of a CD that attempts to create cabaret music for the early 21st century.

"Cabaret -- Kurt Weill to William Duckworth," issued by Geisha Farm, features Chizuru Mitsuhashi, who has devoted herself to Weill's works. Mitsuhashi is accompanied on piano by Tomoko Yazawa, a specialist in contemporary music.

Though classically trained as a mezzo soprano, Mitsuhashi sings in a deep voice on "Speak Low" and other Weill tunes. She takes the same approach on "Sex-Appeal" and other tunes by Friedrich Hollander, whose songs Marlene Dietrich once sang.

The CD also includes the chanson "Sous le ciel de Paris," tunes by Lisa Bielawa, born in 1968, and "Simple Songs About Sex and War" by William Duckworth, born in 1943, who is considered the founder of Post-minimalism.

Anyone interested in the CD should send a postcard to Geisha Farm, 4-22-4 Fukasawa, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo 158-0081 or fax (03) 3701-9057 with name, age, address, occupation and e-mail address. The deadline is Dec. 8

The CD is also available at Disk Union Ochanomizu Jazz-kan, near Ochanomizu Station or at Nadiff Modern in the basement of Bunkamura in Shibuya.
