Description
This world premiere recording of scenes from Kurt Weill's rediscovered masterpiece brings to life a major 20th-century work that lit up the 1937 New York season. A biblical pageant, a profound music drama, and a theatrical extravaganza, The Eternal Road combines the legends of timeless Jewish heroes and heroines with the tragic story of persecution in Europe. Numbers include the Israelites' Dance around the Golden Calf; duets between Ruth and Naomi and Ruth and Boaz; and scenes for Abraham, Moses, Rachel, and the Prophets.

"Some of the most inspired music that Weill ever wrote, demonstrating that after he fled from Europe to America his genius remained as fertile and original as ever. This generous selection … gives an excellent idea of the piece, very well performed and recorded in Berlin with American soloist and conductor. The vigour of the writing brings a most attractive image of the Broadway style that Weill was developing…. First-rate sound."—Penguin Guide

"The performance is fervent and touching."—NYTimes
