Pride is for the wealthy, and in an economic crunch there’s only one way for a girl to get ahead. Bertolt Brecht knew that back in 1933, and Kurt Weill set it to music that stings even while it slips tune after fabulously sleazy tune into your unresisting ears. Social comment has never been so shameless. Soprano extraordinaire Danielle de Niese stars in The Seven Deadly Sins, and accordion sensation João Barradas shows that no instrument is so humble that it can’t burn the house down, as Edward Gardner and the LPO head to Battersea Arts Centre for these two performances to liberate The Music in You.
