Nachtkonzert, One touch of Genius!
Songs for Broadway by Leonard Bernstein and Kurt Weill
Fredrika Brillembourg Mezzo Soprano, Frank Schulte Piano
Between 1930 and 1970, Leonard Bernstein and Kurt Weill, both successful classical composers, turned their gifts to the Broadway stage. Their unforgettable songs, with lyrics by such luminaries as Ogden Nash, Maxwell Anderson, Stephen Sondheim, Betty Comden, and Adolf Green, expressed the tenor of the times, and became popular hits and part of our American musical vernacular.
