The legendary iconoclast Kurt Weill has become a figure central to the cultural life of the twentieth century. An artist known for his relentless exploration of the boundary between high and low art, Weill left behind a treasury of classical music and unforgettable songs, Mack the Knife and Alabama Song, among them. Working with Bertolt Brecht and others, he used musicals such as The Threepenny Opera to address the most serious of social and political issues. In a lavish style suitable to the subject, Kurt Weill's life is explored with in-depth scholarship and more than 900 photographs, many in full-color, from archives in five different countries, to form the essential addition to any theater or music lover's collection.show more
