Notes & Reviews:
Recording Premiere of the Original Version of the children's pantomime entitled Zaubernacht (Magic Night) composed by Kurt Weill. We have only recently learned of the score's existence when it surprisingly resurfaced in a publisher's safe in 2006. Listen now to the elegant toy waltzes, marches, and polkas in their original form.
American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This is very early Kurt Weill (1900-50). It is a charming, beautiful composition written for children. Weill called it a children's pantomime in one act. Weill fans will want this, and some people will want it for their children. I like it just for the sheer beauty and fun of the music.
