Description

10 songs from three of Kurt Weill's most famous stage works are presented in easy arrangements for viola and piano. The CD provides invaluable listening material and an alternative accompaniment in the absence of a pianist.

Reviews

Here the violist benefits from very appealing arrangements of 10 of Weill's theatre songs, suitable for the intermediate player. Perhaps "cool" and "suave" aren't words that immediately come to mind when the viola is mentioned. However, here's a Mack the Knife arrangement that is sure to turn the 'square'-est violist into Sinatra. This and Zuhalterballad will bring a sensual sophistication to your next viola recital. Three waltzes will also delight, ranging from the joyful Parisienne to yearning melancholy and nostalgia. The well-recorded CD is a wonderful stylistic aid. Improvised passages are written out, leaving one free to copy or invent your own. Stringendo Magazine 04/2013
