Although Bertolt Brecht collaborated with many composers over the course of his artistic career, his work with Kurt Weill stands out. A prime expression of interwar modernism, yet uniquely accessible and often playful, this music continues to be widely performed and discussed to this day. Spider Saloff and Bradley Williams will perform selected pieces by Kurt Weill. The concert is followed by a talk with Noah Zeldin, examining the collaboration netween Brecht and Weill.
