Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht, Lotte Lenya: undoubtedly a likeable trio. Composer Weill and author Brecht were responsible for the stage classics like the three penny opera (Dreigroschenoper) and Mahagonny, while Weill s wife, Lotte Lenya, was on stage playing the lead roles. Even today they are still standard works of musical theater! Also on this two-CD collection: September Song from "Knickerbocker Holiday", sung by Frank Sinatra!
Die Dreigroschenoper – or Threepenny Opera– epitomises the heady, but turbulent years of the Weimar Republic. Bertolt Brecht’s biting satire and Kurt Weill’s insistent, insinuating melodies remain as compelling today as they were at the work’s premiere in 1928. This landmark recording was made just two years later. This disc also features numbers from Brecht and Weill’sMahagonnyand songs by their contemporaries – with the young Marlene Dietrich among the performers.
