With 900 photographs, including stills, musical scores, playbills, the composer's notes and other original artwork, Kurt Weill is an addition to any theater or music lover's collection."--Jacket

In a wide-ranging discussion, Abravanel takes up Weill's compositional ideas and methods; his opinions of other composers, especially Darius Milhaud and Igor Stravinsky; and his relations with various collaborators. He spends time on Weill's personal life, especially in Europe in the 1920's and early 1930's, and his relationship with Lotte Lenya. Additionally, Abravanel discusses Teresa Stratas's abilities as a Weill interpreter, and reminisces about several of Weill's stage works, notably One touch of Venus, Die sieben Todsünden, The firebrand of Florence, The eternal road, and Knickerbocker holiday. A good part of the interview is devoted to identifying names unearthed from Weill and Lenya's correspondence and papers
