Introduction


An artist who lived twice

«Two lives to live»: such is the title of this recital dedicated to Kurt Weill which was first given at the 2011 Salzburg Festival. After a fruitful European career in partnership with Berthold Brecht, Weill embarked on another equally successful career in the United States.
