Music sources for Kurt Weill's Bürgschaft in the collection of the Weill-Lenya Research Center, 1930-[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 Die Bürgschaft are the following: a photocopy of the holograph full score, a copy of the Universal-Edition full score, a photocopy of the final draft of Erwin Stein's vocal score (prepared for Universal-Edition), a vocal score representing the production at the Städtische Oper Berlin, 1957, another representing the production in Hamburg by Hermann Scherchen, David Drew's 1976 version of the complete work, and a full score representing Weill's revision of No. 14 (in act 2).

As a result of the success of his Broadway musical Lady in the dark in 1941, German-born composer Kurt Weill and his wife, the singing actress Lotte Lenya, were able to buy "Brook House," in Rockland County, New York, moving there during their sixth year in the United States. 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.
