Kurt Weill Retrospective w/Diane McNaron and Thomas Bagwell, Unitarian Universalist Church

Soprano Diane McNaron‘s Kurt Weill Retrospective, not heard in Birmingham in nearly a decade, will be presented with New York pianist Thomas Bagwell. Bagwell, a Birmingham native who has not appeared here in fifteen years, will open the program with the rare and atmospheric Berg Piano Sonata. These two consummate performers will then take the audience on a musical odyssey through the controversial lives and the turbulent times of Berlin/American composer Kurt Weill and the woman he married twice, the chanteuse Lotte Lenya.

Featuring songs from Threepenny Opera, Happy End, The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, little known and expressive art songs and Broadway hits.
