5.0 out of 5 stars Unmissable original and atmospheric recordings 10 April 2010
Format:Audio CD
Thirty years ago I managed to find an LP with most of these recordings on, in Germany. Since then I have been trying to locate them on CD. My problem has been that none of the other recordings of Dreigroschenoper make my skin tingle the way these do. The minimal accompaniment fits the music perfectly. None of the many other recordings I've listened to have tempted me. Just try the marvellous fragility of this rendering of "Pirate Jenny" to see what I mean.
But for me the supreme treasure on this album is the inclusion of Brecht songs sung by the great man himself. Even if you don't understand German, the atmosphere engendered by these tracks is electric. The "Ballad of the inadequacy of human endeavour" is a triumph. Sadly, the detailed booklet does not list the words or translation of the final verse but this is a small omission.
This is 78 minutes of digitally remastered gems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably authentic! 20 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a great fan of the Threepenny Opera. So I am already biased. This is really the most original recording of the piece. Wow! It is just so fantastic! I am so glad I bought this CD. I am sure there are other recordings that might be satisfying. But this was recorded around 1930, before the rise of the Nazis, when German cabaret was a fresh and stimulating entertainment. Buy this recording - and enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw 4 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There's something in these originals that modern performances lack. You can feel the raw emotions of Pirate Jenny and the boys itching to make mincemeat of foreigners. They must have been desperate times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful original recording, plenty extras. 11 Sep 2006
By Gluedisc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In quick summary:

- If you're at all familiar with the Dreigroschenoper and all its incarnations, be sure to buy this album. It's the closest you could get to an 'original'.

- If you're completely new to the Threepenny story, I would recommend starting with the 1999 Nina Hagen concert version instead. It's got all the songs left out here, better recording quality, and a more modern approach to the music.

This is not a complete collection of original cast Dreigroschen songs. Rather, it's a selection of the best tracks from the play, often censored and cut short (in all the usual ways), and filled up with seemingly random extras in the genre.

The performers are all quite brilliant, and it's refreshing to hear a 3P without all the screaming and biting from recent versions. Though the songs are by no means slow, they're much more relaxed, more saccharine I would say, than what they've later evolved into. I love both type interpretations, but I often prefer this one.

One very nice bonus is the inclusion of a handful Threepenny songs in French. Otherwise pretty hard to come by. Also, the famous final lines of the movie version (Moritat reprise) are present, which I've only seen in one other recording (the 1981, also led by Miss Lotte Lenya). All in all, an essential CD for Brecht/Weill fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The original cast--the real thing. 12 Mar 2008
By Uncle Willie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You can buy lots of different versions, old and new, German and English, of The Three Penny Opera. This is the original "Dreigroschenoper," done with the cast and orchestra of Brecht and Weill. Be ready for culture shock, but--isn't that what you're looking for?

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Three-Penny Opera" 1930 recording 8 Feb 2010
By Dr. Howard Holter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a wonderful package and recording! Sound is excellent. This is a restored original recording from 1930, with Lotte Lenya et.al.The discs ccome with a complete libretto (in German, English & French), together with photos of the participants, drawings, theatre bills, etc. It is wonderful to hear this as it was performed in 1930. One gets the feel of the times as interpreted in words and music of that year in Germany.Die Dreigroschenoper: Berlin 1930

5.0 out of 5 stars This one is really fine. 2 Mar 2006
By William S. Kalenborn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've been a three-penny freak ever since I was a hanger-on at a Stanford production 40 years ago directed by a Brecht associate from Berlin. It's wonderful to get the authentic original cast records. I really like the added Berlin Chansons, too. "Don't Goggle at that Tango Dancer, Keep Your Eyes on the Guy You Came with!" Or Marlene Dietrich, with "Jonny, When it's Your Birthday, I'll Be Your Guest for a Night."

5.0 out of 5 stars more than expected 26 May 2013
By Reinhard Ronnebeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To have an 1930 recording electronically "cleaned" of noise is magnificent. The attached booklet with the complete lyrics is very thoughtful and to do so in German, French and English is remarkable. One gets a real glimpse of Berlin of 1928 at the first performance.
