Kurt Weill (1900–1950) A German composer, Weill studied under Albert Bing at the Dessau Court Theater. In 1921 he became a student of Busoni in Berlin, and it was there that he completed his first symphony. In 1928 Weill completed perhaps his best known work, The Threepenny Opera, which has been performed all over the world. He later fled Nazi Germany and eventually settled in the United States in 1935, becoming a citizen in 1943. His oeuvre includes not only musical theater and opera but works for orchestra, string ensembles, and voice.
