Classical Music Manuscripts Collection

Identifier: MS-0226

Scope and Contents

The Classical Music Manuscript contains a wide array of score and parts, in both manuscript and printed form, from composers and music educators dating back to the Eighteenth Century. Along with recognizable names such as Domenico Scarlatti, there are many far lesser known composers from the time of Mozart and Beethoven that are represented here in this collection, with rare scores and pedagogical manuals. Not only are the items an interesting glimpse into virtually unknown works, they are a valuable resource for those seeking insight into notational practices of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries.
