Texts in English by Hanns Eisler

These writings are taken from Hanns Eisler – Musik und Politik – Schriften 1924-1948, ed. Günter Mayer (1973: VEB Deutscher Verlag für Musik, Leipzig) © Stephanie Eisler. I have only edited Eisler's original text where necessary to aid comprehension. I have also translated some of Günter Mayer's background notes (November 2000). Texts will become available as time becomes available for me to scan in and edit them. Please note that page turns in the DDR edition are inserted into the online texts on the principle that |#498-9| means the boundary between page 498 and 499.
