  • about this album

    The CD of this album is available at ArkivMusic.

    In these two landmark works of the 20th century, the grand overtures of the fading Romantic Movement give way to a more direct approach aimed at reaching the listener as clearly possible. To this end, Weill and Milhaud borrowed from the vaudeville, burlesque, and jazz idioms, creating an aural snapshot of Europe between the wars.
