Weill: Music For Johnny Johnson

£7.99

Product description

The ‘high arts’ in the disillusioned years following World War I were much given to irony, satire, sardonic play, and collage. And no musician showed greater aptitude for all these tricks and tendencies than Kurt Weill. Behind Weill’s satirical, modernist mask, however, is often a core of deep emotivity and even, at times, sentimentality. The personal, tragic-within-comic aspect of Weill’s music is what most gives it lasting value, and its ability to haunt our inner ear long after the curtain has fallen or the CD has been removed from the player.

Tiny scratch on disc.
