I, Kurt Weill
A multimedia biographical collage
Moderation: Dr. Jürgen Schebera
Vocals: Stefanie Wüst
Piano: Reinhard Schmiedel
A personal rendezvous with the composer: Kurt Weill is brought to life through little known silent and sound film clips from Berlin, Paris and New York as well as rare private photos, his voice can be heard on US radio broadcasts and as an interpreter of his own songs, recorded on shellac while working with Ira Gershwin. Soprano Stefanie Wüst, a festival favourite of long standing, places these historical documents in the context of diverse songs from the various creative periods of Weill's life.
In cooperation with the
MDR Landesfunkhaus Magdeburg.
