The Works of Kurt Weill: Transformations and Reconfigurations in 20th-Century Music» brings together an international group of scholars to explore one of the most important and intriguing composers of the twentieth century. The collection approaches Kurt Weill?s career from new angles. Shedding new light on perennial issues such as the apparent split between his German and US careers, while pushing into new scholarly territory, including Weill?s engagement with technology and film, and his lasting legacy on Broadway and beyond. The volume consists of two parts: the first, ?Transformations?, explores the composer?s poetics, dramaturgy and expressive techniques through a number of case studies spanning Weill?s entire output (theater, film, radio); in the second, ?Reconfigurations?, the composer?s transnational career and reception are investigated through his compositional, poetic, and aesthetic choices.
