(Schott). For over fifty years these treasures have lain dormant in the archives Now at last this volume of Unsung Weill brings together 22 previously unpublished songs from the pen of the celebrated composer of the Threepenny Opera . All these songs were cut from successful Broadway shows for practical reasons, though they lack nothing of the quality of Kurt Weill's world-renowned hit songs. The words are by legendary songwriters such as Ira Gershwin, Oscar Hammerstein, Langston Hughes and Ogden Nash. This volume contains plenty of photographs of the composer and of his songwriters, making it an ideal gift and an essential for any fan of Weill. All the pieces are presented in simple arrangements for solo voice and piano in easy keys, with chord symbols included.
