Kurt Weill

Kurt Weill (March 2, 1900 - April 3, 1950) was a German composer.

He was born in Dessau, Germany and died in New York.

After growing up in a religious Jewish family in Germany, Weill fled the newly Nazi-dominated Germany in March 1933 to Paris and in 1935 further on to the United States. He married actress Lotte Lenya[?] twice: in 1926 and, after their divorce in 1933, again in 1937.
