sample page

Meisterwerke der Musik im Faksimile, 29. Laaber, 2013. Oblong, 41 x 27 cm, xxx, 30 pp. Full color reproduction of the autograph short score preserved in the Koussevitzky Collection at the Library of Congress. This deeply inspirational work for narrator, men’s chorus and orchestra, written in just 13 days, is a nice summing up of Schoenberg’s compositional and technical achievements. The handwriting of the 73 year old is shaky, and due to failing eyesight relatively large, but nevertheless there is clear and raw energy in his setting and depiction of the horrific Warsaw ghetto, in his words, “based partly upon reports which I have received directly or indirectly.” Hardbound with photo reproduction of the original binding. $214
