Music sources for Kurt Weill's Mahagonny Songspiel in the collection of the Weill-Lenya Research Center, 1927-[ongoing].

The collection forms part of Series 10, which consists mainly of music manuscripts: non-autograph originals and photocopies of both non-autographs and autographs. It also includes rental materials and some arrangements by other composers. Briefly stated, all music materials for the works of Weill other than those offered for sale by publishers are included, whether in score or parts, as long as they present his music without fundamentally altering its character. (For more details on inclusion/exclusion, see the record for the whole series--"Music sources for the works of Kurt Weill ...," ID NYWS94-A2.) Materials on Mahagonny include the following: a color photocopy of the vocal score belonging to Irene Eden, who created the role of Bessie; the Universal-Edition "Originalfassung" full score c1964 (rental material); and photocopies of vocal scores for the so-called Rome and Paris versions (1932-33) prepared by Hans Curjel and Maurice Abravanel, which include handwritten Italian translations.
