DESCRIPTION OF COLLECTION

Cadenza Collection (material undated, est. 1875-1910)
2″ linear
Location: M1A 3,1

 

Provenance

This collection was extracted from gifts received by Sibley Music Library over an undetermined period of time, probably extending through the 1960’s and 1970’s. No indication of source of the materials is available. The collection was discovered in the basement of Sibley Library prior to the Library’s move into its new facility in January 1989.

 

Scope and Content

The collection includes forty-two imprints of cadenzas for violin concertos published predominantly during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The cadenzas are for many major works in the instrument’s repertoire. The composers of the cadenzas include many first rank and historically important virtuosos of the time. The collection will be particularly useful for the historical study of violin performance practice during the late nineteenth century.

 

Restrictions and Use

There are no restrictions.

 

Associations

The library possesses a collection of letters by the violinist Arthur Hartmann, active during the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries. Manuscripts of several works dedicated to Hartmann are also in the rare books collection. A finding aid exists for the Hartmann collection. Both Eastman School Archives and Sibley Music Library possess materials relating to the career of Jacques Gordon, a prominent early twentieth-century violinist.
