Quote from: hermes2015 on December 02, 2022, 05:09:04 AMThis thread has brought back memories of one of the roots of my love of classical music. I was exactly 13 when I heard Bobby Darin sing Mack the Knife on the radio.My mother, cultured lady that she was, told me that it was an adaptation of the original Mackie Messer song composed by Kurt Weill for his Dreigroschenoper. At one of the local record stores they had an LP of the opera with Lotte Lenya singing it.That was one of the things that set me off exploring the connections in music. I am so grateful that I learned at an early age that art is a succession of influences that are fun to explore.
