Kurt Weill: American - Part 3

From Brecht to Broadway

Airs Tuesday, July 4 at 2 p.m. After fleeing Nazi Germany, Kurt Weill came to the United States in 1935. The music he subsequently wrote in this country was important in the development of American musical theater.

     The programs will explore Kurt Weill's American Songs, Kurt Weill and Popular Singers, and Kurt Weill's American Lyricists. Kurt Weill, American is funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York, NY.
