Die Hollywood-Elegien (Eisler, Hanns)

(Redirected from Hollywood (Eisler, Hanns))

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Misc. Comments

There are multiple collections named Hollywood-Elegien. Originally, Eisler set 5 of Brecht's texts as 5 Hollywood-Elegien; in the next two years, he added two more. These seven are found back-to-back in his Hollywood Liederbuch. It appears as though some later publications included one more song ("The rat men"), and rearranged the numbering of others. At this point, I can't determine whether this later version is Eisler's definitive numbering and collection, or whether it's an editorial choice. To further complicate matters, the volumes from which these pieces were scanned collect Nos. 1-3 and 5-7 as Die Hollywood-Elegien, and publish No.4 separately. As it is, on this page seven Hollywood elegies are in the order they appear in his Hollywood Liederbuch.
