  Sanda Weigl
The Music of Kurt Weill
With: Sanda Weigl (voice), Lucian Ban (piano), Albrecht Maurer (violin)
The music of Kurt Weill and the German-expressionism songs of the Weimar culture in a unique interpretation by the singing sensation Sanda Weigl. Songs from „The Threepenny Opera”, „The Rise and Fall of The City of Mahagonny” and other Weill gems are radically re-imagined in a program that blends cabaret, 20th century classical avant-garde music with jazz experimentalism. Born in Bucharest, Sanda Weigl and her family had to flee political persecution from the communist regime to Berlin, Germany, to their only surviving relative, Helene Weigl, Bertolt Brecht’s widow and director of the Berliner Ensemble. Sanda was immersed in the Brecht/Weill tradition meeting Lotte Lenya and studying with Helene. Since relocating to New York in the early nineties Sanda has performed her singular interpretations throughout the United States, Mexico, Poland, Germany, Austria, Israel and in her native Romania among other places.
