Music sources for Kurt Weill's Railroads on parade in the collection of the Weill-Lenya Research Center, 1938-[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 Railroads on parade include the following: a lightly annotated photocopy of the autograph full score (1939 version); and the manuscript full and vocal scores of David Drew's concert adaptation entitled Trains bound for glory.

From Brook House, and a couple of addresses in Los Angeles during his trips there, Weill kept in touch, until a month before his death, with his parents, who had emigrated to Israel in 1935.
