Music sources for Kurt Weill's Eternal road and Der Weg der Verheissung in the collection of the Weill-Lenya Research Center, 1934-[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.) Of particular importance in the collection of materials on The eternal road are the following: photocopies of sketches and the holograph full score (incomplete); a photocopy of the holograph rehearsal score; the engraved rehearsal score from 1935; materials for a proposed new edition of the full score by John Mauceri and David Loud; a revised vocal score prepared by Lys Symonette; Symonette's version for two pianos and chorus performed at Merkin Hall (New York) in 1987; and additional materials prepared by Symonette at various times.
