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 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not since perhaps Eleanor and Franklin has there been so provocative a public pair: fiercely independent and yet codependent, they spent twenty-five years discovering a way they could live together after they figured out that they couldn't live apart. In 1932 they separated; in 1933 they divorced. They reunited in Paris in 1935 and then went to New York; in 1937 they remarried and together applied for American citizenship. Except for brief periods of separation, their relationship remained what it had always been, simultaneously tenacious and tumultuous. Yet Weill and Lenya required one another on a creative level that transcended ordinary emotional, erotic, and professional bonds. Although she was musically untrained, Lenya's canny theatrical sensitivity and innate intelligence enabled her to become Weill's most trusted critic as well as his most famous interpreter, especially as Jenny in The Threepenny Opera. As Weill rhapsodized, "When I feel this longing for you, I think most of all of the sound of your voice, which I love like a very force of nature."

Abravanel begins the discussion by recounting his memories of early performances of Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny, and goes on to talk about Weill's opera Die Bürgschaft at some length. He tells stories about Weill's brief stay in Paris and the genesis of Die sieben Todsünden. Throughout the interview he reminisces about several of Weill's collaborators, most notably Bertolt Brecht and Maxwell Anderson. He also spends time discussing Weill's compositional methods and the state of American musical theater. A good part of the interview is devoted to identifying names unearthed from Weill and Lenya's correspondence and papers
