There has long been a pressing need for a collected critical edition of Kurt Weill's music. In the decades since the composer's death in 1959 his musical legacy has been represented in print either by flawed editions or not at all. Only two of his compositions for the stage have ever been published in full score. Several major theatrical works were never circulated in any form, and only a few orchestral and chamber compositions have been generally available.
The Kurt Weill Edition addresses this basic need. For the first time, each of the composer's completed works will be presented in a form realizing the highest editoral and scholarly standards, dedicated to use by both scholars seeking authoritative texts and performes seeking accurate editions.

volumes) including Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny, Die Dreigroschenoper, Der Silbersee, Die sieben Todsünden, Johanny Johnny Johnson, Lady in the Dark, Street Scene, and Lost in the Stars.
