Kurt Weill Project

Eva Mayerhofer & Frankfurt Jazz Trio

Like few others, the names Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht are synonymous with the radical politics and cultural innovation of the Weimar Republic.  Most famously with their hit Die Dreigroschenoper (The Threepenny Opera), but also with numerous other collaborative pieces, the duo represented everything that the Nazi regime declared its enemy.  The Jewish Weill and the Marxist Brecht were thus some of the earliest and most obvious targets of Nazi cultural oppression.

With  an outstanding Jazz -Trio,  Eva Mayerhofer is performing songs of the composer Kurt Weill.
