September Songs: The Music of Kurt Weill
Directed by Larry Weinstein
USA | 91 minutes | 1996
This tribute to the life and music of Kurt Weill features Lou Reed, Teresa Stratas, Elvis Costello and the Brodsky String Quartet, Betty Carter, PJ Harvey, William S. Burroughs, Charlie Haden, The Persuasions and a host of others performing many of the composer’s most celebrated songs, including Mack the Knife, September Song and Alabama Song. Set in a turn-of-the-century warehouse, the lavish designs echo many of the themes of Weill’s work. From the steely austerity of the 1930’s factory floor to the glittering spectacle of a Broadway musical stage, each performance reflects the magic of the music and captures Weill’s creative spirit.
