Catalog Description : A study of a composer’s career, emphasizing the relationship between composer and society. Topics in this series vary from year to year. May be repeated when topic is different.

Topic for Fall 2014: Kurt Weill--From Berlin to Broadway
In this seminar we will study the life and works of Kurt Weill (1900-1950), a composer whose contributions to the musical stage are unparalleled in the first half of the twentieth century. As an avant-garde composer in Europe, Weill was known for his collaborations with leading playwrights, including Bertolt Brecht; after 1935, Weill established himself in the United States as one of the most innovative composers on Broadway. In addition to focusing on a selection of Weill's compositions for theater, ballet, concert, and radio, we will study the history and culture of Berlin in the 1920s and New York in the 1930s and 40s as contexts for Weill's career.
