Biographical Sketch

Boris Kremenliev, Bulgarian-American composer and musicologist (Razlog, 23 May 1911 – Los Angeles, 25 April 1988). Kremenliev came to the United States in 1929 and received a BM and an MM from DePaul University in Chicago and a Ph.D. from the Eastman School of Music in 1942. (His thesis was on the symphony between 1890 and 1900.) During World War II, he served as a member of the Psychological Warfare Branch of the U. S. Army in Europe. From 1945-46 he conducted concerts as music director of the Frankfurt Radio. In 1947 he was appointed associate professor of music theory and composition at the University of California, Los Angeles, a position he held until 1978. In addition to writing music for orchestras, films, and chamber groups, Kremenliev did extensive research on the folk music of his native Bulgaria and on Slavic music in general. He published an important treatise, Bulgarian-Macedonian Folk Music (Los Angeles, 1952) and contributed articles on 20th-century music to various journals.

 

Provenance

The collection represents materials relating to the compositions of Boris Kremenliev received by the Sibley Music Library from the composer’s estate. This collection was separated from Kremenliev’s books and research notes relating to Balkan, slavic, and other Eastern European folk musics. These are inventoried separately as the Boris Kremenliev Folk Studies Collection.

 

Scope and Content

The collection represents a substantial portion of the compositions of Boris Kremenliev, most of them written in the United States between 1942 and 1985. The collection includes the composer’s sketches and original drafts for many of his works. Lists of Kremenliev’s compositions can be found in the New Grove and most other major research guides. Only a few of his compositions were published, however, although he was represented by several publishers (Leeds, Foster, Clayton F. Summy, Bruzzichelli). This collection is therefore all the more valuable for its breadth and inclusiveness. It contains the composer’s original sketches and drafts for many works, final transparencies and copies of scores and parts, as well as in some cases composer’s annotated rehearsal copies. The collection therefore affords an important overview of Kremenliev as an active 20th-century composer.

 

Restrictions and Use

There are no restrictions placed on the use of this collection except as regards copyright law.

 

Associations

The Watanabe Special Collections department holds collections of compositions of several twentieth-century American composers.

 

 

DESCRIPTION OF SERIES

The sketches, manuscript scores, and printed scores have been inventoried in three series: vocal music, instrumental music, and miscellaneous assorted sketches. Sketches identified with a particular work have been inventoried with that work. Each series is divided into subseries that are usually defined by instrumention or vocal ensemble. A few subseries are delimited by genre (“Works for Film, Radio, and Theater” and “Pedagogical Works for Piano”). Works within each subseries are generally arranged alphabetically by title. One exception to this is series 2, subseries 5 (“Works for Keyboard”). In this subseries, pieces were grouped first according to instrumentation (unidentified keyboard instrument, harpsichord, organ, piano) and then alphabetically within that grouping.
