Our project sarted with a few arrangements by Vito Lesczak and me. We fell in love with the music and with the process of listening to what the music needed. And like Kurt Weill in his own collaborations, we looked to find the best people and the best sounds to suit Weill's extraordinary songs, When Hilary Gardner joined us, we knew we had the perfect collaborator and voice to deliver the story-driven songs. Peter Donavan completed the sound and added vision and creativity. The Kurt Weill project was born. In the recording studio , we added Aaron Heick and Leif Arntzen , both of whom contributed a richness and depth to the music.
A Song About Forever is a jazz based exploration of Kurt Weill's songs, with a nod towards their musical theater roots. We sincerely hope you discover some songs you might not have heard before and rediscover songs that now fell brand new. These songs are about forever, and each will be a song you'll love.
