Description
This engaging and lavishly illustrated book draws on a wealth of previously unexplored written and pictorial material to present an up-to-date and balanced biography of Kurt Weill, whose life was as rich and complex as the music for which he is acclaimed.

"Schebera's life of the composer, which reads smoothly in Caroline Murphy's English translation ... contains intelligent and helpful comment on the music, and is especially valuable for its many illustrations, several of them of rare photographs and documents, and all of them fascinating". -- Charles Osborne, Sunday Telegraph

"Nearly every page includes a photograph, concert programme or record label. This abundance does not, however, imply that any sacrifice has been made in the text, which meticulously charts the composition, premiering and critical reception of Weill's theatre and concert works. Such a wealth of detail makes this thoroughly researched book one which will be of value to anyone with an interest in the composer". -- Andrew Crumey, Scotland on Sunday

"An extraordinarily instructive, well-considered, and absorbing book". -- Schwann Opus

"A beautifully illustrated and informative introduction to one of our century's most fascinating composers. A very accessible book". -- Teresa Stratas
