Speak low (when you speak love) : the letters of Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya by Kurt Weill( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The letters are filled with artistic news, reactions to world events, reports on work-in-progress, and reflections on the creative process and the experience of exile. We get a backstage view of German music and theater, the American musical theater in the late thirties and forties, and the Hollywood studios. Together Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya have come to symbolize what was most vibrant about the experiment of Weimar culture in the Golden Twenties and what was most vital among the contributions to American culture by Central European emigres
