Eva Meier

Eva Meier is one of the worlds finest song and chanson singers, reaching international acclaim with her repertoire featuring the likes of Kurt Weill, Hanns Eisler or Paul Dessau.
Students of the Royal Academy received a unique opportunity to perform in a Masterclass with Eva Meier and her Pianist Paul Cibis. Thank you to Richard Stokes, the Royal Academy and of course Eva Meier and Paul Cibis, for putting together this fantastic event.
I have not yet dared to venture into the realm of these songs, but the lyrics, many by the German author Bertolt Brecht, are amongst the most compelling of any song repertoire.
