The Life and Music of Kurt Weill with conductor Urs Leonhardt Steiner.
The son of a Jewish Cantor, Kurt Weill was famous in Weimar, Germany for his collaborations with Berthold Brecht (including Three Penny Opera). Weill escaped to the U.S. in 1933, where he reinvented himself for the Broadway theater. His music became freer and jazzier, influenced by Cole Porter and Leonard Bernstein.
Maestro Steiner will share insights on the genius of this legendary composer, and how his move from Germany to the U.S. impacted his work. Recorded examples will be played to illustrate the lecture.
Admission is $7 general, $5 for JCC members, students and seniors. Reservations are advised.
