Texts in English by Hanns Eisler

Φ tagg.org

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). 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.
